ROS News for the week of June 3rd, 2024

ROSCon 2024 Registration is now open! This year we’ve doubled the number of ROSCon workshops, and we’re adding dedicated spaces for birds of a feather gatherings and community group meetings. The city of Odense is going to be rolling out the red carpet for our visit, and there will a number of scheduled lab visits, walking tours, and mixers before and after ROSCon. We are recommending ROSCon attendees plan to arrive early and plan to stay for a few days after the conference.

Give a warm welcome to our 2024 ROS / Gazebo Google Summer of Code Students. Find out more about they will be working on this summer on the Open Robotics Blog.

The Open Sauce conference is happening in San Francisco next weekend. A bunch of robotics YouTubers will be speaking at the event. Myself and Phil Nelson, the developer advocate over at OpenCV, have put together an open source at Open Sauce after party for next Friday at the new Studio 45 co-working space in SOMA. If you are in the area please come by, all are welcome, regardless if you are attending Open Sauce.

NVIDIA released Issac ROS 3.0 this week.There are lots of goodies in there, including the FoundationPose detection module I’ve been posting about for the past year.
