description

Personal Robotics research and development are accelerating.  A growing community of Open Source developers is creating a platform called ROS that anyone can build on to make the breakthroughs that will lead to new applications.  Willow Garage is building a personal robot platform, PR2, which has two arms, a mobile base, and a rich sensor suite. This talk will review the current status of ROS and PR2, and discuss opportunities to join the ROS Open Source community.

 

presenter(s)

Steve Cousins is the President and CEO of Willow Garage.  Before  Willow, Steve was a senior manager at IBM's Almaden Research Center.  He has been on the senior staff of the Palo Alto Research Center (PARC), and a researcher at Interval Research Corporation.  Steve holds a PhD in CS from Stanford University, and Bachelor's and Master's degrees from Washington University.
