ROS Meetup Munich

It was great to be part of the ROS Meetup Munich event. Over 200 ROS users attended the event at the traditional German Beer Hall.

We did a quick straw pole in the room about how everyone got into robotics, and what were their backgrounds

  • 25% mechanical
  • 45% software
  • 1% testing 
  • 29% other

There were presentations from a number of people and we found some of the figures Open Robotics presented to be really interesting.

The adoption of ROS2 is continuing to grow around 18% year on year, with over 42 million downloads of ROS2 in the month of May 2023 alone. ROS2 is definately becoming the operating system of choice for robotics.
