Robots are becoming an indispensable tool in space exploration. Traditionally, these systems were developed using custom, proprietary software written for each application and hardware platform. Meanwhile, the broader robotics community has standardized on ROS, an open-source platform for building robotics applications. Now the space industry is following suit by developing Space ROS, which will allow ROS to be qualified for space applications and reused across missions, saving development effort and speeding up robotic space exploration. In this session, learn about Space ROS and its potential for space robotics

Space ROS Technical Lead
Michael Jeronimo has been with Open Robotics for two years and is currently the technical lead for the Space ROS project. Before Open Robotics, Michael was a staff software architect at Intel Corporation where he co-developed a coprocessor for video analytics, ultimately leading him into autonomous vehicles, Robotics and ROS. His team developed a highway pilot software stack and then transitioned to Intel's Open-Source Technology Center where they ported the Navigation stack from ROS 1 to ROS 2. Michael re-architected the nav stack to improve flexibility and reliability, integrating features such as scriptable behavior using Behavior Trees. Besides computer vision and robotics
Michael has also worked in the fields of Internet security, home networking, and compilers. He is the co-author of two books from Intel Press, "UPnP Design by Example," and "Applied Virtualization Technology" and holds several patents in the fields of Internet security and home networking.
