We are delighted to invite you to attend our next Members’ Meeting for the ROS-Industrial Consortium. We will commence on March 5th with a one-day training session focused on application development. This session is free for Consortium Members and $750 for non-Members. The training is appropriate for anyone with a robotics background and wondering, “What can I do with ROS-Industrial?”. Training topics will include pick and place application development, calibration, perception, and planning. Day 2 is reserved for Consortium Members only and will include technical roadmapping activities and a review of current and future focused technical projects.
