The Embedded Systems Lab is organizing a ROS session at the ISR! The purpose of this event is to spread ROS in ISR, helping this already wonderful community grow.

ROS is an open source distributed robotics platform designed to accelerate robotics research and development, including commercial application development. ROS is a high-quality, actively maintained, well-documented software platform intended to support the academic and industrial robotics communities. ROS includes reusable components that implement a variety of low- and high-level functionality, such as base navigation, mapping, visual odometry, arm planning and control, data visualization, object recognition, and task-level execution. ROS supports a number of research robots and common robot simulators.

All ROS software is released under an Open Source license, and the great majority of it is licensed under a BSD-style license that allows users and companies to build applications on top without licensing constraints.
  • Location: ISR amphitheatre, at ISR University of Coimbra, Portugal.
  • Date: Wednesday, 16 February 2011
