May 2018 Archives

Looking foward to ROSCon 2018 we're highlighting presentations from last year. The ROSCon 2018 registration is currently open. As well as the Call for Proposals.

In this talk Dirk and Mikael focus on sharing a vision of how ROS2 will be useful in different use cases.

Abstract

Using a concrete use case, this talk will describe the vision of how ROS 2 users will design and implement their autonomous systems from prototype to production. It will highlight features, either available already in ROS 2 or envisioned to become available in the future, and how they can be applied toward building more capable, flexible, and robust robotic systems. While the presentation starts with a simple application, it later utilizes more advanced features like introspection and orchestration capabilities to empower the system for more complex scenarios and harden it to the point of a production-ready system.

Looking foward to ROSCon 2018 we're highlighting presentations from last year. The ROSCon 2018 registration is currently open. As well as the Call for Proposals.

The first talk at ROSCon 2017 was given by Shinpei Kato about the current state of Autoware a ROS-based open sources software platform for urban self driving mobility.

Abstract

Autoware is open-source software (OSS) for urban self-driving mobility, empowered by ROS. It provides complete modules of perception, decision making, and control, which enables drive-by-wire vehicles to drive autonomously in public road environments. The current maintainer of Autoware is Tier IV, a Japanese academic startup company comprising professors and students. Automotive makers and suppliers now often use Autoware to build their research and development prototypes of self-driving mobility. Autoware has also been partly ported to ROS2. This talk will be of interest to any researchers, developers, and practitioners who are looking for opensource solution of self-driving mobility.
