Survey about ROS2 usage in companies?

For the companies section in the awesome-ros2 list I am looking for companies which are “using” ROS2 (means working with ROS2 in research departments). A lot of companies search for employees with ROS2 know how. However most of the time ROS2 is mentioned as “bonus” and it’s not easy to figure out if companies actually use ROS2. Probably this topic is worth a survey?

I would also like that.
Maybe we should even include questions about ROS1 & ROS2 - which are they using.
And also ask if they use ROS1 / ROS2 in their commercial products.
Do you already have an idea on how you would want to publish such a survey?

Answers to questions like these would be enlightening. However I’m pretty sure most companies won’t answer due to various reasons. I’d not answer questions in much detail myself.

Not any idea yet…

If you’re using ROS or ROS2 in your product, both the BSD and the Apache-2.0 license require you to declare that.

Of course, companies are not obliged to answer a survey, but they would have to put it into their product documentation for their customers.

Right. However I’m not very motiavted to search for and browse through product documents :slight_smile:

I am a bit skeptical of surveys. Generally any survey is only going to be as effective as its reach; and if the community is always doing surveys there is going to be a bit of fatigue. I feel like what might be more effective is if we collect all of the data the community wants into one big survey and send that out once a year.
