Any ROS robots in the NASA Sample Return Robot Challenge?

The finals started yesterday and I believe ends today, there isn’t a lot of information about the competitors except for a listing:

  • Team Al - Toronto, Canada
  • Alabama Astrobotics - Tuscaloosa, Alabama
  • MAXed Out - Santa Clara, California
  • Mind & Iron - Seattle, Washington
  • Sirius - South Hadley, Massachusetts
  • Survey - Los Angeles
  • West Virginia University Mountaineers - Morgantown, West Virginia

I just heard an interview on the livestream with a team Survey member who said their robot was using ROS.

Yes, Survey uses ROS. I think the Univ of West Virginia is using ROS. Many of the competitors used it over the years. I competed in 2013 but wasn’t using ROS. Main language used is C++.

MAXed Out - Santa Clara, California uses ROS.
