ROS & Simulations

The ROS (Robot Operating System) team uses the ROS software libraries and tools to enable communication between the Perception, AI, and Controls code. They are also responsible for building a simulation framework that interfaces with the ROS framework to test code. Members spend a lot of time thinking about the big picture of our codebase, optimizing its design and usability, troubleshooting integration issues, and ensuring the rest of the team’s code is compatible. 


Future goals: transition from ROS 1 to ROS 2, further improve our simulation framework using Virtual Robot X software.
