Hardware Acceleration WG, meeting #9

Hello all,

I’m calling for the ninth Hardware Acceleration Working Group meeting to be held on 2022-05-31T16:00:00Z (your browser’s time). In case you missed past meetings, here’s the ROS 2 Hardware Acceleration Working Group list with past recordings we are keeping. As for the working group resources, find them below:

ROS 2 Hardware Acceleration Working Group (HAWG) resources

Plan of record is to touch on a) Humble transition, b) status of hardware support and other updates. In addition, we’ll have Christophe Bourque Bédard (@christophebedard) from Polytechnique Montréal telling us about extensions to ros2_tracing with the analysis and visualization of the flow of messages across distributed ROS 2 systems. Their method detects one-to-many and many-to-many causal links between input and output messages, including indirect causal links through simple user-level annotations, providing valuable timing and scheduling information to further study and improve the any ROS 2 system. This is very valuable for hardware acceleration purposes. Their paper is titled: “Message Flow Analysis with Complex Causal Links for Distributed ROS 2 Systems

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