ROSCon 2017: RoboWare: A “Product Oriented Design” IDE for ROS developers — Tony B Wang and Jeff Gao (Jinan Tony Robotics)

Looking foward to ROSCon 2018 we’re highlighting presentations from last year. The ROSCon 2018 registration is currently open. As well as the Call for Proposals.

Tony Wang and Jeff Gao present the motivation and design behind RoboWare. As well as an overview of how you can leverage RoboWare to develop ROS robots quickly.



RoboWare is a development kit specifically designed for ROS. It provides an integrated development environment, which has general purpose IDE functions: code editing, building and debugging; It fully supports ROS, including the creation and management of workspace, packages, libraries, nodes, msg/srv/action/launch/yaml/urdf files, etc. RoboWare supports “POD (Product Oriented Design)” development, it has a graphical designer for robot hardware architecture, the design diagram can be automatically exported as a ROS workspace for further development. It also provides a GUI development framework, which has plenty of robot-related controls and is cross-platform
