ROSCon 2019 Macau: (Keynote) Beyond Autonomy
Ian Sherman (Formant)
ROS is increasingly powering businesses with paying customers, production SLAs, and scaling challenges. These impose a new set of requirements for robotics software. This presentation draws on experience at a small ROS startup, a large non-ROS robotics initiative, and now a company helping ROS customers go to market, to explore questions including: What does ROS look like as part of a larger solution architecture? What are the natural complements to the ROS software ecosystem? What technologies, patterns, and practices in disciplines adjacent to our own -- disciplines such as backend distributed systems and IoT -- can the ROS community beg, borrow, and steal?
