ROS News for the Week of February 19th, 2024

Open Robotics will be participating in Google Summer of Code 2024. We’re looking for a few interns to help us out! See the post for all the details.

Our next Gazebo Community meeting is next Wednesday, February 28th. Sikiru Salau, a competitor in the Pan-African Robotics Competition, will be joining us to talk about simulating robots for agriculture.

Hello Robot is having a great month! Last week they released their third gen robot. This week they are at the top of the orange website with this “OK Robot” paper from NYU

Check out the AutoNav robot by Jatin Patil. Hats off to the developer, this is a really well put together personal project!

Just a reminder: Gazebo Classic goes End-Of-Life in January 2025 and ROS 2 Jazzy will not support Gazebo Classic. We put together some guidance for those of you that need to make the switch!

Don’t forget Nvidia’s newly announced partnership with Open Navigation! I think that’s big news!

Their partnership and support is critical to keep Nav2 healthy and chugging along with new advanced features. Stay tuned for some that are coming out at GTC which are a direct outcome of this partnership that the whole community can leverage!

Thanks to Nvidia and the Isaac team (@HemalShahNV @ggrigor and Dave Elliot)! Its been a pleasure working with you and I look forward to the future!


Great, Nvidia is not only saving the whole US economy, they are also helping with Nav2! :grin:
