ROSiE the Robot Operating System in Erlang
Robots are exciting. Lots of progress in robotics in terms of research, tools, and state-of-the-art libraries that we see in modern robots became possible due to Robot Operating System (ROS). It is the most popular open-source robotics middleware that enables roboticists from both academia and industry to collaborate and relatively easy get robots up and running. However, ROS is neither scalable, nor fault-tolerant, and these are areas in which the Erlang programming language has lots to offer.
In this talk, we'll introduce ROSiE (Robot Operating System integrating Erlang) that merges togetherness and state-of-the-art of the open-source robotics world with expertise in scalability and fault-tolerance of Erlang. We'll talk about our vision, finds, and progress so far
