"ROS on the Rocks" / "Boulder is for Robots" Mashup!


UPDATE (3/31/2014): To accommodate a larger audience we are moving the event to the ATLAS Black Box Theater on the CU campus. Bring your friends!


The Robot Operating System (ROS) has taken the robotics research and development communities by storm! Find out more about the ROS framework at:

Come visit the (UPDATE: Black Box Theater) to enjoy a night full of robots, presentations, and networking opportunities (Oh.. and did we mention refreshments provided by Orbotix??). We've lined up 3 short (20-30 min) talks to give you a perspective on the ROS ecosystem - the following topics will be covered:

  * A Bare-Bones Introduction to ROS

  * ROS and rosbridge used as a platform for cognitive research

  * MoveIt! - ROS's motion planning framework

Hope to see you there!

Thanks again to TechStars and Orbotix for hosting/sponsoring the event

Please checkout our partner meetup group: "ROS on the Rocks!"

On Campus Parking: metered visitor parking is available at the Euclid Ave. Autopark just south of the ATLAS Institute.

    Thanks, guys! Was a great introduction to what ROS is... and what it can do; with three 'real-world' projects to demonstrate -- and in three very different ways! Hope to chat and network further at the next event...
