PAL Robotics at 2016 ROS-Industrial Conference

By |2018-07-03T15:27:23+00:00November 9th, 2016|Articles|

ROS-Industrial project aims to apply ROS (Robot Operating System), the de facto standard in robotics, to the industry. Having a shared open operative system in robotics gains relevance when it is applied to manufacturing applications and opens new possibilities for robots to be integrated in assembly chains. PAL Robotics was invited to the annual ROS-Industrial [...]

OSRF Jackie Kay visits PAL Robotics

By |2018-07-03T15:28:57+00:00July 27th, 2016|Events|

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 [...]
