Our own @chfritz launched the beta for his new startup Transitive Robotics. Transitive Robotics is building a platform to address fleet-scale deployment, monitoring, and teleoperation of robots. Full coverage of the Beta is available on ROS Discourse and The Robot Report

A big shout out to our friends at PickNik. They’ve been killing it this summer. In the space of couple of weeks they released MoveIt 2.7 and MoveIt Studio 2.0, raised an undisclosed sum of money from Cypress Growth Capital, and launched a strategic partnership with SKA, They are also holding down Space ROS, and have been pushing for a robotics track at CPPCon. :mechanical_arm: :robot:

Please join us next Wednesday for our our monthly Gazebo Community Meeting. At the meeting @roni-kreinin from Clearpath Robotics will be discussing they put together the TurtleBot4 simulator. If you are looking to get started with Humble and the latest version of Gazebo the TB4 simulation is a fantastic resource.

I’ve lined up a great speaker from Ken Goldberg’s lab at UC Berkeley. We’re going to change things up and try a round of :zap: lightning talks :zap:.
