Sponsor: Performance Motion Devices
Robots are a challenging combination of software, real-time services, perception, and mechanical motion control. Frameworks like the Robot Operating System (ROS) help coordinate these pieces. The panelists in this webinar will address these platforms as well as how it relates to hardware control and simulation environments.
