Report on First MoveIt! Community Meeting

by admin

Thank you for coming to the MoveIt! Community Meeting and thanks to the presenters for making this a huge success. There were more than 240 people registered and more than 150 who attended from all over the world. I apologize to those running Ubuntu who had issues joining us (using Chrome was the suggested solution for the future).

Thanks to all the presenters for the great talks:

  • The State of MoveIt! - Sachin Chitta (Stealth Startup)
  • OMPL - Mark Moll, Lydia Kavraki (Rice University)
  • ROS-Control - Adolfo Rodríguez Tsouroukdissian (PAL Robotics)
  • Updates to STOMP - Jorge Nicho (SwRI)
  • MoveIt! based implementation of an I-AUV - Dina Youakim (University of Girona)
  • Team VIGIR at the DRC - Stefan Kohlbrecher (Technische Universität Darmstadt)
  • ROS 2.0 and Manipulation - Jackie Kay (OSRF)
