    105. Managing fleets of robots with Open-RMF with Yadunund Vijay

    105. Managing fleets of robots with Open-RMF with Yadunund Vijay

    I would like to dedicate this episode to people that are thinking about building fleets of heterogeneous robots for automating whole businesses like pizzerias, hotels, or hospitals, this episode is dedicated to you.

    In this episode, you are going to learn how to make multiple robots navigate in a ROS2 environment, and how to use the Open-RMF to manage different fleets.

    Now let me introduce you to Yadunund Vijay. Yadunund is one of the main developers of the Open-RMF at Open Robotics in Singapore. He is also the technical leader of several other software projects using ROS2. What is the Open-RMF? Why do we need it? How does it work? Those are some of the questions that Yadunund will explain to us during this interview.

    103. Vulcanexus the all-in-one ROS2 toolset, with Jaime Martin Losa

    I would like to dedicate this episode to people that are struggling with ROS2, but are not giving up.

    In this episode we are going to learn about how to develop ROS2 programs with less effort, in a more efficient way, by using a set of ROS2 tools encapsulated in a distribution.

    Now let me introduce to you Jaime Martin. Jaime is the CEO of eProsima the company developing Fast DDS, the default middleware for the upcoming release of ROS2 Humble. He is an expert in middlewares, and as such, he leads also the eProsima membership at the OMG and the Technical Steering committee of ROS2 and he is the responsible of eProsima contribution to the DDS standards.

    99. 2021 ROS Recap

    99. 2021 ROS Recap

    Hello ROS Developers!



    The 2021 is about to finish. Another year in pandemic mode!



    I thought that the last week of the year would be a good moment to review how has it been the year for our favorite robotics framework.



    In this video we are going to evaluate the year for ROS in terms of hits. How much progress has made ROS along the year? Is ROS in a better position now than at the beginning of the year?



    Let’s have a look!

    Chronology

    FEBRUARY



    We started the year in February, when NASA announced that ROS2 will be used in the Viper mission to the Moon and Open Robotics posted a job position to work in that project together with NASA. What an awesome start of the year! Later at the ROSWorld you can find a presentation delivered by one representative of NASA about this Viper mission.



    MARCH



    But then, In March, Blue Origin posted another job announcement on the ROS Discourse forum looking for engineers with ROS2 knowledge for the development of Space ROS. Space ROS?!?! What is that?!?! We had no idea that that was on the table! Later in July, they will establish a collaboration with NASA to create this system together.



    APRIL



    In April, I interviewed Sarah Gibson about their release of Unity for ROS. Unity launched the Unity-ROS set of packages to make work ROS with Unity simulations. The packages include ROS TCP endpoint, ROS TCP Connector and a Perception SDK aimed for the generation of training data for visual robotic systems. Packages for ROS2 were released a couple of months later.



    MAY



    In May, Universal Robots in collaboration with Picknik, launched their ROS2 drivers for their UR robotic arms. That is a big step towards ROS2 usage because, as far as I know, the UR robots are the only industrial robots that you can buy right now with support for ROS2. Awesome!



    JUNE



    Then, Husarnet announces that it goes Open source during the ROS Developers Day conference in June. Husarnet is a peer-to-peer secure VPN network for robots over the internet, which specially works well with ROS. Check out their presentation at the ROSDevDay conference.



    JULY



    In July, Fetch was sold to Zebra Technologies for 290M$. Fetch is one of the flagships of the ROS community. Fetch Robotics was started by ROS pioneer Melonee Wise in 2014 and it was leading the market of ROS AMRs for warehouses. Being sold for such amount indicates the good health of AMRs based on ROS.

    At the same time, Softbank Europe laid off 40% of its workforce. It is worth to notice that Softbank robots do not run with ROS… I’m just saying…



    AUGUST



    In August, Tesla announced that they will create a humanoid robot called the Tesla Bot. Even if I tried to get in contact with Elon Muck, I was not able to get an interview so what I’m explaining here are just my guesses. I think that their robot is not going to be based on ROS. Instead they will try to use their already in place operating system for their cars, in an attempt to create their own ecosystem, like Apple, using the same O.S for all the devices, cars, phones, robots, etc…



    So far, they posted some job openings for the project and none of them required knowledge of ROS.



    Another interesting news for the ROS world made in August was the announcement of Intel to discontinue the development and selling of the RealSense. That is one of the main sensors used by the robotics community to perceive the world. A pity and a problem for roboticists which relied on that sensor for their robots. If that is your case, you can find a discussion about alternatives to the RealSense in ROS Discourse.



    SEPTEMBER



    The final event of the DARPA Subterranean challenge was held in September and Team ...
