ROSCon 2019 Macau: Lessons learned: a brief history of autonomous robot operations
Florencia Grosso (Ekumen), Julian Cerruti (InOrbit)
In this talk we will share our experience from the last seven years working jointly with dozens of robotics companies to deploy and operate fleets of ROS-based autonomous robots in production. We will talk about the challenges seen, practices observed and technologies used in a variety of industries. Our focus is on the often-neglected aspects that surround robotics technology which are not core yet necessary to bring a robotics product out into the field at scale.
