2022 ROS 2 Technical Steering Committee Community Representative
As you may recall, the ROS 2 TSC Community Representative election was scheduled to wrap up last night at midnight California time. We had six great candidates for this year’s election and unfortunately we have only one slot to fill this year. The representative elected in this election will serve as the ROS 2 TSC community representative until October 2024.
Before I announce the winner, on behalf of the ROS community I want to thank our outgoing community representative Brett Aldrich (@brettpac) for his service on the ROS 2 TSC. Thanks Brett! Your contributions to our community in the form of your representative term and maintainer of SMACC are an excellent model of service in open-source software.
The TSC Community Representative election uses the Condorcet method, which is a form of ranked-choice voting. We had 253 votes submitted by the community, and I have attached the voting results below.
Now, without further ado, the winner of this year’s election is:
Francisco Martín Rico (@fmrico)
Francisco is an associate professor at the Rey Juan Carlos University in Madrid, Spain and the author of PlanSys2, MOCAP4ROS2, and Cascade Lifecycle 2. You can read Francisco’s full bio here
Congratulations Francisco! I will reach out to you via e-mail to set up a time to chat before December’s TSC meeting on Thursday, 12/15. Also thank you @DLu, @ruffsl, @donowak, @parzival , @Justobak01 for taking the time to run and putting yourselves out there for a community election.
