PNW-ROS is a new chapter of the successful SV-ROS ( http://www.meetup.com/SV-ROS-users/ ) Which I founded in 2013. I now live up here in the great PNW and seeing if there is any interest in ROS in the Tacoma/Seattle area.
ROS the "Robot Operating System" from ROS.org ( http://www.ros.org ) is the leading standard software used to control the next generation of intelligent and versatile robots.
The PNW-ROS users group is for all skill levels. All are welcome to learn how to shorten the ROS learning curve and get your robotic ideas, created and tested quickly. Teams I have lead in the SV-ROS chapter have: - Won the 2015 Microsoft connect Challenge - Prestigious 2nd place at the 2016 Nasa Sample Robot Return Challenge ( http://maxed-out.io ). - Trained over 50 people on using Neato botvacs for autonomous navigate
ROS is the most common robotics controller software, you can become part of this leading robotics success. It is imperative that the PNW-ROS users make ROS accessible and practical for anyone. Come share your robotic experiences with like minded DIYs.
