Standard Robotic Software Architecture for RoboCup Rescue based on ROS

 - One Week Developing and Tutorial Workshop -

When: 12 - 16 September 2011
Where: at University of Koblenz-Landau, Koblenz, Germany
Website: tinyurl.com/rosworkshop
Tutor: Troy Straszheim (maintainer of roscpp and rosbuild at Willow Garage)

RoboCup Rescue wants to foster the research on robots that can be used
in unstructured environments after natural or man-made disasters. To
build such systems from scratch is very difficult, and also reusing
great solutions from other teams is hard due to different frameworks
used among the teams in the league. To speed up the overall
development, we want to provide an open source standard software
solution for new (and also for experienced) teams in RoboCup Rescue.
This framework will enable the teams to adopt quickly to world class
level, and to make good solutions reusable. The common framework will
enable the teams to focus on one certain aspect, and to share their
solutions with the community easily. During the five days workshop we
want to design, implement and test the common RoboCup Rescue software
framework based on ROS. We will also provide a tutorial session for
students that did not use ROS before. In a parallel track, we will
specify the requirements for the RoboCup Rescue software framework,
pick and assemble the appropriate modules (packages and stacks) from
ROS (for both the robots and the operator station) and set up a
simulation environment. At the end of the week, both tracks merge and
test the newly created framework, both in the simulation and on real

The tentative schedule will be posted on the website:

Registration deadline is Friday, 12 August 2011. See:

The workshop is sponsored by the RoboCup Federation and supported by
Willow Garage and the University of Koblenz-Landau.
