ROS by the Bay Meetup

by Camilo Buscaron

Last month, AWS hosted at our East Palo Alto offices the second ROS by the Bay Meetup organized by Open Robotics. ROS is an open source set of software libraries and tools that which helps developers build robot applications. We were excited to support this growing community of open source developers, with over 50 attendees. The event coincided with the latest release of ROS2, Dashing Diademata LTS Release. Miaofei Mei of the AWS RoboMaker team presented some of the contributions that AWS and the community have made to Quality of Service (QoS) features implemented in the ROS2-D release.
