RoboBusiness Direct Presents:

The Life and Times of ROS2: A Look at the Future of Robotics Infrastructure

Steve Macenski, Open-Source Robotics Lead, Samsung Robotics

Wednesday, July 29, 2020 – 2:00PM EST



Since 2007, Robot Operating System (ROS) has changed the way robots are built. In an effort to improve ROS to be appropriate for commercial and industrial solutions, Open Robotics released ROS 2 in 2018 supported by leading companies such as Samsung, Microsoft, and Amazon.

ROS2 provides strict messaging guarantees, security, and modern tools for deterministic robot behavior. ROS 2 provides for higher-quality, robust solutions for many aspects of robotics development and deployment including simulation, communications, manipulation, navigation and more. Long-term support for ROS is ending in less than 5 years and the entire robotics industry must transition to the new meta-operating system.

In this RoboBusiness Direct session on July 29th, Steve Macenski, Open-Source Robotics Lead for Samsung Research, will discuss ROS2. He will:

  • Provide critical ROS2 information to decision makers.
  • Discuss the evolution of ROS2 since 2018, along with the current status of ROS2
  • Review the results of a survey of notable ROS2 users and a roadmap for the future.
  • Highlight notable aspects of Eloquent, the latest release of ROS2.
