Webinar on open source robotics.

Hey, I was in a webinar on open source in Robotics!

What is open source software? What are some the advantages and disadvantages? Can every robot use ROS (Robot Operating System)? These are just a few of the questions discussed in last month’s Robots and Open Source Operating Software webinar, hosted by Robotic Industries Association.

  • What are some of the advantages and disadvantages of open source software?
  • What is corporate America’s concerns with open source? Safety?
  • Can every robot use ROS, what are the impediments?
  • What could open source mean to industrial robotics?
  • What about open source and the profit motive in software?
  • Who saves $$ on ROS from the big picture perspective?
  • The Internet of Things and ROS/ROSi and Security?
  • What does the future look like?
