Meeting Video:

Meeting Chat Record:  Chat Record (PDF)

Meeting is at 1:00 PM CDT (not DPRG’s normal Noon time)!

In Coordination with Hackster DFW

Special guest speaker Lou Amadio is a Principal Software Development Lead at Microsoft corporation in the Core Operating Systems group focusing on Robotics and autonomous systems.

Lou is leading the effort to enable ROS on Windows and to expand Microsoft’s ROS1 and ROS2 portfolio. Additionally, he and his team are working with customers to deploy ROS on Windows and ROS with Azure Cloud Services and to expand the ecosystem, while improving reliability and stability through a DevOps for Robotics initiative.

Lou will walk through a cool presentation touching on lots of interesting areas, and has asked if we can make this an interactive session. So let’s start at the intersection of Robots and Microsoft, and find some good branches to explore!

For example:
• Windows 10 IoT
• ROS at Microsoft
• DevOps for Robotics
• Azure Kinect DK ROS node
• Onnx Runtime ROS Node
• Azure IoT Hub ROS Node
• Visual Studio Code for ROS
• Mixed Reality Toolkit ROS module
• MRTK ROS For Unity
