Agro Robots & Precision Farming Applications powered by ROS

  • Dipl.-Ing. Andreas Linz
  • Hochschule Osnabrück

Developing new Field Robots or Precision Farming Applications will be more efficient by using software, which is reusable, extendable, offers useful tools and supports different simulation environments. All this is fulfilled by the open source software ROS (Robot Operating System), a middleware and framework with a huge tool collection for robotics and simulation. ROS is widely spread in research but meanwhile also in development departments of big companies. The presentation gives an overview of research activities "powered by ROS" at the University of Applied Sciences Osnabrueck.
