Hardware Acceleration WG, meeting #11

Hey all,

After a good summer break, I’m happy to call for the 11th Hardware Acceleration Working Group meeting to be held on 2022-09-29T16:00:00Z (your browser’s time). In case you missed past meetings, here’s the ROS 2 Hardware Acceleration Working Group list with past recordings the WG is keeping. As for other working group resources, find them below or in the WG community repo:

ROS 2 Hardware Acceleration Working Group (HAWG) resources

In the last meeting we had 207 attendees so expect the upcoming gathering to be packed :upside_down_face: . We have exciting updates coming up: a) Robotic Processing Unit updates and release, b) Hardware acceleration in ROS 2 and Gazebo community survey updates and release schedule, c) REP-2008 updates, d) ROSCon and IROS hardware acceleration talks and e) a new WG subproject (roscore-v) that will design an open source software and hardware ROS 2 microcontroller unit (MCU) powered by RISC-V.

The meeting is scheduled to be 60 minutes. Coordinates for the meeting below:

It was my first session with the H/W Acceleration WG, and was a great one indeed. Looking forward for more!:blush:
