Talk abstracts:

Presenter: Julian Kent – Computer Vision Technical Lead, Auterion

Julian will present on Auterion's use of ROS in their industrial-grade vision-based navigation and safety systems. What will be discussed are the algorithms currently in use, interfacing of ROS with the PX4 autopilot firmware, the problems ROS solves and the issues it brings for use in industry, and where Auterion will be going next with ROS.
