As introduced during Kimberly Hambuchen’s ROS World 2021 Keynote presentation (check it out here if you didn’t get the chance to attend!), NASA and Blue Origin are working to develop Space ROS - a space qualified version of ROS2 to support the development and deployment of advanced robotic capabilities in space.
NASA has released an RFI (Request for Information) and is seeking feedback from the ROS and Aerospace communities to help shape the future of Space ROS. If you would like to contribute feedback, responses are due January 31st, 2022. More information can be found on the RFI’s landing page.
More information on Space ROS will be released on ROS Discourse in the near future, so stay tuned!
I interviewed this week Francisco Miranda who is involved in that project. You can listen to the interview at the last episode of the ROS Developers Podcast for more details: 98. Awesome projects with ROS with Francisco Miranda - ROS Developers Podcast
Just bumping this post in case anyone who would have been interested in responding missed it the first time around. There are 3 weeks left until the RFI closes!
Quick reminder that there are just 11 days left to submit feedback for to NASA’s Space ROS RFI.
We’d love to get feedback from the community to help shape the future of ROS for aerospace applications.
Final reminder from me: responses to NASA’s Space ROS RFI are due Monday, January 31st - just 4 days away! Please be sure to review and submit your feedback before the deadline if you’re interested
