More Information :

Context :
The objective of this working group will be to develop and maintain select ROS 2 tools. We define a tool to be: software supporting developer productivity or robot operation, outside of the middleware communications functionality. This definition remains intentionally broad until it needs to be narrowed.

The Tooling WG will focus on the roadmap, contribution, maintenance, and ownership of adopted subprojects. WG-owned GitHub repositories for subprojects will primarily live in the working group GitHub organization: ros-tooling .

Thanks all for attending!

  • Rosbag2 file compression has minimal changes left and will be landing soon
  • The sysem metrics collector is quickly approaching its first release
