Title:
Face Tracking with ROS 2
Date:
November 20th
6:30 PM (2 hours)
Location:
Axiom
Beraverton
Abstract:

ROS 1 uses a custom serialization format, a custom transport protocol and a custom central discovery mechanism. Maintaining custom infrastructure is expensive. To mitigate ROS 2 uses the DDS (Data Distribution Service) and RTPS (Real Time Publish Subscribe) standard protocols. To gain an understanding of ROS 2 and its capabilities Robert Adams installed it on a Raspberry Pi.

To test ROS2, a face tracking robot was built out of two Raspberry Pi 3s and a laptop. Incorporating a camera node, a PWM control node, an image processing node, and a tracking node, the distributed ROS2 system watches for and points the camera at faces.. This presentation will present an overview of the current state of ROS2 (architecture and code) and then delve into the practical aspects of building a robot system with ROS2 by demonstrating the face tracking robot and its implementation.

Title:
IEEE Technology Strategic Planning Workshop
Date:
December 1st
9:00 AM (4 hours)
Location:
Tektronix Beaverton Campus-Bldg. 38
Beaverton
Cost:
Admission fee may apply
Abstract:

Strategic planning consists of translating a diverse set of input into a coherent approach to achieve business goals. A strong plan is an integral part of any successful enterprise. This workshop covers topics targeted at managing direction and planning from a corporate, department, or a small company orientation in today’s fast-paced “hyper-velocity” markets.  One of the key questions to be addressed is “How can I develop a strategy when it is nearly impossible to identify a long-term competitive advantage?”  The challenge is to be able to manage today to position the company to compete in an essentially unknowable future.  Defining simply, one’s strategy is necessary, but often insufficient to assure success.  The challenge is planning for effective implementation and rapid adaptation within a diverse team facing fast-changing technologies and markets.  The workshop provides several foundation concepts and tools to organize the strategic plans. The learning will be through presented material and discussions.
