ROS-Industrial Conference 2018 -- December 11-13, Stuttgart - Germany

Be it assembly or navigation - the "Robot Operating System" (ROS) open-source framework is increasingly used in industrial applications. First launched to transfer ROS to manufacturing, ROS-Industrial continues to make it 1) better through software engineering best practices for quality assurance (QA), 2) accessible to developers through dedicated training, 3) supported on commercial hardware platforms through cooperation with OEMs.

A this year's conference, special focus will be on recent developments for software QA, embedded systems, and complex architectures; ROS support from robot vendors; application highlights in aerospace, automotive, logistics. In addition, EU ROS activities and how to get involved will be covered.

The event will include a welcome talk on how "Robotics impacts Industry and Society: What are the Numbers and Trends" (Martin Haegele - Fraunhofer IPA), as well as three keynotes: "Open-Source Robotics for Fun & Profit" (Dave Coleman - Piknik Consulting and MoveIt!), "Robotics and Automation in the Age of the API Economy" (Henrik Christensen - UC San Diego and ROBO Global), "Flexible Automotive Assembly with Industrial Co-workers" (Fabian Fuerst - Opel, and Georg Heppner - FZI).
