Title: Towards a Theoretical Foundation for Real-Time Robotic Operating System (ROS)
Abstract: ROS (Robot Operating System) is currently the most popular framework for robotic software development. In its 10-years history, ROS has been used by hundreds of thousands of developers to power a large number and different types of robotic systems. Robotic software is typically subject to timing constraints, to match the inherent dynamics of physical objects and the environment. In this talk, I will identify some theoretical and practical challenges in building real-time software on ROS, and introduce some of our recent work towards building the theoretical foundation for a real-time ROS.
