Looking for freelancer with experience in ROS and optional in Computer Vision

Hello everybody,


I'm looking for a freelancer who can do some coding in my ROS project. I have work for all skill levels. So, it might be interesting to students who want to earn some extra cash. In total I have work for around 35 hours. 

You have to be experienced in ROS, C++ and Git. If you have skills in Computer Vision then I have further work for you. 

Please reply with some information about you (who you are, etc.) and your skills/experience. Keep it casual.

Best regards,

~ D. Frey

A ROS Summer School, July 23-26, Shanghai, China

ROS Summer School 2015

July 23-26

East China Normal University, Shanghai, China


Since 2012, many college students, researchers and engineers have been learning ROS (Robot Operating System) for their robotics projects when the robustness and maintainability of ROS keeps improving. Since 2013, many robotics companies in China have realized the importance of ROS, started recruiting ROS developers and integrating ROS into their robotic products. However, learning ROS framework and its associating components involves a very wide range of knowledge, which not only requires developers to master software development skills, but also to be familiar with robot hardware and even the background of specific industrial applications.


For most people, learning and using ROS is a slow and painful process. Our ROS Summer Schools 2015 (organized by Intelligent Robot Motion and Vision Laboratory, East China Normal University, Shanghai, China) provides a quick and in-depth learning opportunity for ROS beginners and advanced ROS users.

In the first day, some robotics companies are invited to present their profiles, how they use ROS in their products and recent developments of robot industry in China. In the second day, we start with some introductory ROS courses for beginners. In the third day, we tackle the main tasks of integrating ROS with mobile autonomous robots, i.e. perception, localization and navigation. In the fourth day, we continue some advanced topics and skills interesting to many advanced ROS users.


This ROS Summer School also includes some leisure activities, such as sharing the start-up experience, companies and job seekers discussion, etc. Every day, attendees have a chance to win prizes, including ROVIO robots, iRobot Create, Asus Xtion Pro Live RGB-D camera, iRobot Roomba Vacuum Cleaning Robot. For how to win a prize and registration, please visit our official website for the details.

Statistics of ROS usage

Hi,

I think (maybe I dreamed it) that sometime ago it was a survey asking about 
the time of the development of ROS (every 6 months new version or a year, 
...), follow ubuntu LTS or no, and I think that it was asked there. But, I 
have been searching on the net with no results.

Do you know if exist some statistics about the number of installations of ROS 
using packages, or from source, or which OS are used?

Best regards,

Leopold

PS I'm not asking for this survey

Mechatronics Intern position at Auro Robotics - Making Autonomous Shuttles for in-campus travel

Hi, 

Autonomous driving team at Auro Robotics is looking for interns in hardware / embedded systems field for immediate joining. If you are looking for something having insanely awesome startup culture and have related robotics background, please do write to us directly at founders <at> aurobots.com or call at +1-408-431-7342 (Nalin Gupta)

Auro is a Y Combinator startup developing driverless shuttles for in-campus travel (pics and video attached). Your mission (should you choose to accept!) would be to take charge of hardware and mechatronics of an autonomous vehicle being developed for pilots programs.


Requirements:
  • Has worked on robotics project (related to hardware / embedded systems) before
  • Good understanding of mechanical design, stability, various types of connectors, safe wiring etc.
  • Working knowledge of basic embedded systems (such as Arduino, Raspberry Pi etc.) and robotics systems
  • Knowledge of C/C++ and embedded programming

We are currently looking for candidates who can join immediately (within 1-2 weeks time frame).

About Us:
We make autonomous shuttles for in-campus travel (pics and video attached) for use at places such as university campuses, large industrial sites, Disneyland, resorts and airports. 

Auro is a Y Combinator S15 batch company, and were recently selected amongst 50 top innovations in a program organised by Stanford Business School and Lockheed Martin.

We focus on developing the autonomous driving software, while partner with vehicle manufacturers and use off-the-shelf sensors for the rest. We, though, sell the complete autonomous shuttle, as a single integrated product.

We are located in Sunnyvale, California. Accommodation and other amenities can be arranged. 

Website URL: www.aurobots.com
Direct contact: Nalin Gupta (Co-founder & CEO) | Ph: 408-431-7342 | E: nalin-pBYQwf6dvfdWk0Htik3J/w@public.gmane.org

Any guideline or template for ROScon proposal?

Hi all!

    I have done some work on ROS and Gazebo and in order to give back to the community, I am glad to write a proposal to the coming ROScon. But sorry that it is my first time to write a session proposal so I want to ask for any guideline, format requirements or template of the proposal. In the official website of ROScon, it states that:

A session proposal should include:
    Title
    Recommended duration: Short (~20 minutes) or Long (~45 minutes)
    Summary, 100 word max (to be used in advertising the session)
    Description (for review purposes): outline, goals (what will the audience learn?), pointers to packages to be discussed (500 Words Maximum)

I just wonder, besides those items stated above, whether I should add extra content to the proposal or not. I will appreciate any suggestion.

Updated Distributions Page on the Wiki

Hi everyone,

I've recently taken sometime to update the Distributions page on the wiki:


Their purpose is to list the existing and planned ROS distributions and summarize the release policy and schedule. We felt the previous pages were a little confusing so hopefully these new pages are a little easier to understand.

We didn't change any of the policies or plans, but we did highlight one thing that maybe wasn't clear before. Our policy allows for us to stop building binaries for Ubuntu distributions which enter EOL. In practice we haven't been doing this, but for example, we might want to stop building binaries for Indigo on Saucy, since Saucy is EOL and no longer gets upstream updates which we might need and yet Indigo still has several years of support left. I probably won't make sense to continue to try and build Saucy binaries for that much longer.

We'll let everyone know if we plan to act on this before we do, so there's nothing happening right now.

If you have a chance, please look over the page and see if anything jumps out at you as incorrect.

Jade Public Packages

Hey all,
  Several Jade packages are held up in the shadow-fixed repo like joystick_drivers, as you can see here:
I am wondering if there is an issue that needs help, or we just need to trigger the move to public repo.
 
Also, what is the status of the Jade release? No rush J

proposal for sensor element on URDF

I would like to use sensor descriptions on urdf_model.

I write proposals for extended sensor element of urdf ( http://wiki.ros.org/urdf/XML/sensor/proposals ).
It's based on SDFormat( http://sdformat.org/spec?ver=1.5&elem=sensor ). 

Some discussion already have here ( https://github.com/ros/urdfdom/pull/28 )

Please review proposals and send feedbak.
Thanks in advance.
