Dear Roboticists,

it is a pleasure for me to invite you to our 3rd ROS-Industrial Conference:

Technologies, Trends and Applications

Time and Date: 09:00 - 17:00, June 9th, 2015
Location: Fraunhofer IPA, Stuttgart

Open Source Software Technologies have been disrupting industries in the recent years, including e.g. cloud computing, smartphones and web applications. Automation and Robotics industry with high safety and dependability requirements, however, today is still characterized by largely proprietary software development - despite the continuous growth of the ROS community consisting of robotics researchers and entrepreneurs.

The goal of the conference is to bring together representatives from academia and industry to exchange experiences on application development with ROS and clarify the needs of industry with respect to ROS-Industrial. The participants have the opportunity to obtain most recent information on new technologies, components, tools and trends in the ROS-Industrial community.

This year's programme furthermore includes the discussion of non-functional aspects of open-source software development and experience reports of ROS-based industrial applications. Experts from industry and academia and entrepreneurs in the field of automation and robotics give talks on e.g. the following topics:

*         ROS Simulation for Industrial Applications with Tecnomatix

*         Interfacing Matlab/Simulink and ROS

*         Real-Time Capable Bare-Metal Implementations of ROS, ROS 2.0, and DDS

*         Robot Operating System: Unsafe & Insecure?

*         Licensing Issues, Quality Assurance and Safety in Open Source Software

*         MARU - A Micro Warehouse running on ROS

The full programme is available under http://rosindustrial.org/events/2015/6/9/ros-industrial-conference-at-fraunhofer-ipa.

The conference addresses system integrators that aim at providing flexible, economic and manufacturer independent automation solutions, ROS(-Industrial) developers in research and industry, executive personal of small and medium enterprises as well as R&D divisions of larger companies in the field of automation, logistics and production.
