Our Mission is to foster the development and facilitate the exchange of scientific and technological knowledge in Robotics and Automation that benefits members, the profession and humanity.” The Oregon IEEE RAS Chapter places an emphasis on sharing technical knowledge. In particular, we focus on projects with the ROS (Robot Operating System). We also have occasional research topics.

ROS is an industrial and research grade robot framework that used in Retink Robotics’ Baxter, robot navigation research and in the Turtlebot educational system. Understanding ROS requires good computing skills, a knowledge using a high level language in an Ubuntu development environment, and an ability to understand how large software systems fit together. We sponsor and develop open labs and workshops to develop understanding.
