A few months ago, Gostai decided to open their Urbi operating system for robots with an A-GPL license. To stimulate the community of programmers using Urbi for robotics or in other domains, Gostai is holding an open contest based on Urbi open source. The project does not have to focus on robotics. Topics can be [...]
The Robotics Summit Virtual Conference and Exposition Series, Autonomy, Navigation, and Mobility Solutions, is available on demand and at no charge. Robotics systems should increasingly be able to move or perform tasks responding to both environmental and internal stimuli without human intervention. This increase in autonomy equates to reduced costs, greater application flexibility and increased [...]
