Our first ever ROSCon India was announced this week. This is super exciting as a ROSCon in India was long overdue! We’re having five local ROSCons this year (France, Spain, Germany, Japan, and India) along with the big ROSCon in New Orleans.

The ROSCon 2023 talk schedule has been published!!!. Make sure to scoop up your tickets before September 3rd when the early bird pricing ends.

ROSCon was highly competitive this year, and only 35% of talks were accepted. If your talk wasn’t accepted please consider posting your work on ROS Discourse and submitting a lightning talk!

The next Gazebo release is brought to you by the letter “I”. Please help us name the next Gazebo release.

Moving robot data long distances without WiFi is a bit of a black art. Check out this example of long-range ROS 2 data transmission using SiK telemetry radios to learn all about long-distance data transmission

This really nice Dockerized pick and place demonstration project is a great place to start if you want to learn about ROS and Gazebo.




Robotics Stack Exchange

The transition is complete! We’ve moved over most of the questions and ROS Answers tags to Stack Exchange. Please take a moment to swing over to Robotics Stack Overflow and answer a few questions.
