ROS-Industrial Consortium

The ROS-Industrial (ROS-I) Consortium is a membership organization providing cost-shared applied R&D for advanced factory automation. Consortium members drive new capabilities in ROS-I by championing Focused Technical Projects (FTP) based on their near-term automation requirements. Other members who are interested in the project form a group that shares the cost of the development effort. The consortium provides financial leverage to its members to accomplish their specific goals through the Focused Technical Projects while accelerating the growth of ROS-Industrial in terms of its capabilities and user base.
