@Alami unfortunately I will be on vacations and won’t be available to join this meeting. May I suggest replacing me with @Katherine_Scott’s proposal. Aligning on this seems pretty relevant IMHO.

Also, a few corrections:

I never intended to “introduce HAROS for ROS 2”, as described by ROS Quality Assurance Working Group December 2019 Meeting Notes, there’s already prior work and my intention was to drive a bit the discussion, understand the experience of others so far and share ours. Not much to present from our side so far.

With this I essentially intented to present some of our recent work on RVD. We made a presentation two weeks ago in ROS Industrial Conference and describe it briefly at This is a funded effort which we’ll continue with. I will reach out and try get another spot later next year :slight_smile:


@Katherine_Scott and @vmayoral, I changed the agenda accordingly.
