4th ROS Meet-Up in Stuttgart (ROS2 talk by OpenRobotics)

I am happy to announce that we will have a 4. ROS Meet-Up Stuttgart at Fraunhofer IPA with a special talk by @jacob of Open Robotics next Tuesday, February 18, 2020 from 1:30 PM to max. 3:30 PM.

Please register for free via eventbrite


Hey @ThiloZimmermann, thanks for organizing the event and @jacob for the interesting talk.

Is it possible to post the slides here?

Here’s a link to the slides, let me know if it doesn’t work:


Works like a charm. Thanks :+1:

Did y’all happen to record the meetup talks?

Dear @Katherine_Scott,

sorry, no we did not record it. But the slides are also for download via the event page:

If anyone need some more background to ROS2, I can recommend the slides as presented at Spring 2019 edition of the RIC-EU Tech Workshop. We wrote a news post back then about the event incl. slides:`

  • As ROS 2 supports multiple DDS/RTPS implementations, RIC-EU proudly hosted one of the most popular DDS vendors, eProsima, to explain the main concepts of DDS and present their stack at the workshop. During the five hours of presentations and hands-on workshops, Borja Outerelo Gamarra and Jaime Martin Losa covered topics like DDS Introduction, presentation of the standard and motivation of DDS & DDS Architecture, and DDS QoS. Attendees practised on a “hello world” example. ePROSIMA’s slides can be found here.
  • On Day 2, Ralph Lange from RIC-EU member BOSCH gave an in-depth presentation of the current status of ROS2. He included hands-on tasks using ROS2 and sow new features and also provided information on the upcoming d-turtle “Dashing Diademata” release on May 31, 2019. Ralph’s presentation slides “Current Status of ROS2 - Hands-on Feature Overview” can be found here.
  • The second presentation by Ingo LĂĽtkebohle, also from BOSCH Corporate Research, introduced the micro-ROS activity. Ingo is one of the investigators of the EU funded OFERA project, which ports ROS2 to “extremely resource constrained devices” (usually, microcontrollers) with the new DDS XRCE standard. He demonstrated this by using a Cortex M4 board mounted on a first generation Turtlebot. Ingo’s presentation slides can be found here.
  • After a lunch break, Ludovic Delval of Fraunhofer IPA gave a hands-on workshop on how to migrate ROS1 node to ROS2. Lastly, Harsh Deshpande, also from Fraunhofer IPA, previewed the porting of the ur_modern_driver to ROS2 and presented a proposal for the action_bridge, which currently bridges between ROS1 action client and ROS2 action server.
