ROS-Industrial EU Fall'19 Workshop on MoveIt, security & skill oriented programming - Oct 09-10, 2019

Fall edition of ROS-Industrial EU Tech Workshop will take place at Fraunhofer IPA on October 09th and 10th, 2019.

We are glad to host two European MoveIt maintainers of ROS-Industrial Consortium member PickNik Robotics and University of Hamburg to give us an insight into the latest developements of MoveIt (incorporating motion planning, manipulation, 3D perception, kinematics, control & navigation), current and planned developements for ROS2 (MoveIt2), and a hands-on on ROS(1)-based ‘bare-metal to product’.

Next on day 2, Joanneum Research, ROS-Industrial Consortium member from Austria, will be demonstrating some insufficiencies of ROS(1) using a penetration testing tool ROSPenTo, developed by Joanneum. They would further walk the participants through setup and configuration of SROS2 , set of tools to provide security infrastructure to ROS2.

The last session of the workshop would be jointly held by INESC TEC, Aalborg University and Fraunhofer IPA. In the join presentation, we will present the robotics skill oriented programming tools developed within the EU project ScalABLE4.0 enabling flexibility in the production line.

Note: Participants will be provided with USB sticks with Ubuntu and all the necessary libraries and IDEs pre-installed.

Just wanted to remind our European ROS community of this ROS-Industrial EU Fall’19 Workshop on MoveIt, security & skiloriented programming in Stuttgart, Germany. The event take place parallel to MOTEK trade fair for assembly automation which is located next to the airport of Stuttgart and approx. 20 minutes away from Fraunhofer IPA.

I could also reserve some hotel rooms for 79 EUR per night. If you are interested in a hotel room or free ticket to MOTEK, please send me an email or DM.
