SwRI uses the Robot Operating System (ROS) and supports the related ROS-Industrial platform to develop innovative solutions in manufacturing and automated driving. ROS is an open-source project that provides a common framework for many applications.
SwRI researchers use ROS to help clients enabled manipulation in dynamic and unconstrained environments. ROS software provides capabilities that extend above and beyond typical robot controller functionality.
ROS provides a safe and secure software platform for our automated driving research in conjunction with machine learning algorithms and sensors. <LINK to Automated Driving>
SwRI provides worldwide support to the ROS-Industrial Consortium and its affiliates in Europe, Asia, and North America. ROS-Industrial is a membership organization providing cost-shared applied R&D for advanced factory automation.
