Episode 3 : Tully Foote

Tully Foote from the Open Source Robotics Foundation explains the benefits of open source in robotics and how ROS came to be an open standard.

In episode 3 of Robots in Depth Per Sjöborg interviews Tully Foote from the Open Source Robotics Foundation.

Tully explains the benefits of open source and how it helps make research and development more efficient. Both researchers and start-ups can focus on their added part, rather than starting from scratch. This is an advantage for the whole robotics community, enabling it to move forward much faster.

Tully also describes how developers can contribute directly to further developing the ROS standard, for the benefit of the robotics community.

Tully Foote is ROS Platform Manager at the Open Source Robotics Foundation.
