Open Robotics is excited to co-host a virtual, informal, maritime Birds of a Feather (BoF) session held in parallel to ROS World 2021 ( ROS World 2021 ).
In sequel to an underwater ROS workshop in 2018 at WHOI ( Underwater ROS Workshop @ Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution ) and the spontaneous ROS maritime community meetings in the past year, we would like to extend the invitation to a larger user group, in light of ROS World 2021 being virtual.
Traditionally, BoF sessions at ROSCon are informal hallway chats where developers and users pick a topic of discussion, i.e. a formal-sounding excuse, to gather during coffee breaks. We regret that coffee will not be served this year; however, you may choose to BYO beverage.
The maritime BoF session provides an opportunity for maritime robotics (both under and on the surface) users of ROS (2) / Gazebo / Ignition to informally discuss their work and needs, to find potential collaborators, and for developers to hear feedback on software and tools.
- When: Tuesday, 19 Oct 2021, 1400-1600 UTC-5 (US Central Daylight Time)
- What: Short, informal status updates on ROS (2) / Gazebo / Ignition projects pertinent to maritime robotics; discussion of collaborative community opportunities
- Registration: https://forms.gle/PxuPwKLHJqwe2ZWN6
- Where: ZoomGov - connection information sent via email to all who register.
The BoF is not officially part of ROS World and is free to attend.
We hope to see you there.
