Today we had the pleasure to receive OSRF Software Engineer Jackie Kay in PAL Robotics. It has been very interesting to share opinions and knowledge with a ROS developer, since all of our robots are based in ROS. Kay gave an interesting speech on ROS 2.0 to some PAL Robotics’ engineers and interns with an open chat about current state of ROS. We also showed Kay our robotic platforms like TIAGo or REEM-C, and some of the demos PAL Robotics developed with them. Thank you Jackie for your visit!
It is remarkable how important it is to have an open common resource such as ROS for all the robotics community. Knowledge can be shared with everyone, which is making robotics grow and evolve faster than ever. As part of the robotics community, PAL Robotics is fully committed to ROS.
Since the early days of ROS, all of our platforms are 100% ROS based in order to ease the learning and usage for our clients. Besides, we have open-source simulations of all of our robots available online. Anyone can download the ROS packages and test things without the need for having the robots physically. PAL Robotics’ software engineers are actively contributing to ROS, here you can find the ROS Wiki of our robots:
Follow the steps at ROS Wiki and start simulating with PAL Robotics’ platforms! And remember: if you do any cool test with them, let us know at email@example.com or tweet about it to @PALRobotics.
