ROSCon 2016 Presentation by Paul Hvass, Shaun Edwards (Southwest Research Institute)
Have you heard of the “ROS-I” or “ROS-M” projects? What about others? As ROS gains acceptance in various commercial markets, ROS-‘X' projects seem to organize around them. Such markets include industrial, military, agriculture, aerial, and automotive. An overview of such efforts, some more mature than others, will be presented. The various reasons these projects form will be discussed as well as the impact on the broader ROS community. There is great potential in specialized ROS-‘X' projects, but these projects also have great responsibility to ensure that the broader ROS project continues and is well supported.
