Atlanta Robotics Monthly Meetup
March 19, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Did you know the Robot Operating System (ROS) is 10 years old!? If you’re doing anything with Robotics, chances are good that you have used ROS, a flexible framework for writing robot software. It is a collection of tools, libraries, and conventions that aim to simplify the task of creating complex and robust robot behavior across a wide variety of robotic platforms. The Open Source Robotics Foundation (OSRF) or commonly referred to as “Open Robotics” are the team behind supporting ROS, Gazebo, and much more including: the community, presentations, conferences, standards, and industry usage.
On Tuesday, March 19, we’re proud to host Software Engineer Michael Carroll, from the Open Source Robotics Foundation (OSRF), to join us to talk about the ins and out of ROS and Gazebo. We’ll also be joined by folks from the Georgia Tech Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines (IRIM).
Join for an exciting night of robot talks, learning, and networking. Come for the learning and connections, stay for the beer. (Yes, there will be beer!)
What to expect:
• Networking and introduction: 7:00 to 7:30 pm
• Speaker, presentation, and Q&A: 7:30 – 8:00 pm
