ROSCon 2017: The ROS 2 vision for advancing the future of robotics development -- Dirk Thomas and Mikael Arguedas (Open Robotics)

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.



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.
