Announcing the ROSCon 2019 Panels

We’re happy to announce that for the first time this year the ROSCon program will include discussion panels:

  • Day 1 (October 31): ROS at Scale. Moderator: Roger Barga (Amazon); Panelists: Tomoya Fujita (Sony Corporation), Shinpei Kato (Tier IV), Melonee Wise (Fetch Robotics). The panel will share their experiences using ROS at scale with large systems of robots in production settings. They will discuss and take questions on the advantages, challenges, and trade-offs of using ROS as part of a system with SLAs for uptime and reliability.
  • Day 2 (November 1): ROS in Research. Moderator: Ryan Gariepy (Clearpath); Panelists: Ingo Lütkebohle (Bosch), Bill Smart (Oregon State University), Musa Morena Marcusso Manhães (Bosch). The panel will share their experiences using ROS in academic and industrial research environments. They will discuss and take questions on how using ROS as a tool in support of scientific exploration has impacted research publication, validation, and funding.

Please join us for these panels and the rest of the ROSCon 2019 program!

Early registration is available while supplies last or until August 24.
