2019 IEEE International Industrial Summit
on Robot Operation System 2.0
 6 May, 2019  |  08:00 ~ 17:00 
 Banquet Hall, Howard Hotel  (B2, 160 Ren Ai Rd., Sec.3, Taipei, Taiwan) 
Liberating Professional Service Robotics - AGVs and AMiRs are no longer constrained by magnetic tape restrictions.

The introduction of ROS 1.0 (Robot Operating System) has been enabled by a wide variety of open source APIs provided free of charge by global developers over the past 10 years. Operators have been empowered to transition from developing their own algorithmic designs to implementing system integration, thereby reducing labor costs and increasing customization and multi-functionality in professional service robotics.

Moving forward, ROS 2.0 combines DDS communication architecture and distributive communication methods to effect simultaneous communication among as many as one thousand professional service robots, guaranteeing “the right data at the right time.” Moreover, the revised framework facilitates the introduction of machine vision and can complete inter-communications among devices, circumventing the conventional limitations of magnetic tape, thus further realizing full human-robot collaboration.

The 2019 IEEE International Industrial Summit on Robot Operation System 2.0 is Taiwan’s first ever large-scale ROS 2.0 event. Invitees include Brian Gerkey, CEO of the Open Source Robotics Foundation and many other well-known industry experts representing interests such as Intel, Microsoft, AWS, NVIDIA, and many others. Together, they will illustrate the abundant opportunities provided by ROS 2.0 to revolutionize the face of global industry.
