Over the past half year we have been working on the new launch system for ROS 2 based on roslaunch from ROS 1. The goal of this presentation is to summarize the state of the design document for launch, describe the current state of the reference implementation, and dive into the rationale behind some of the design decisions. The attendee should come away with a deeper understanding of the differences between roslaunch from ROS 1 and the new ros2 launch tool. We’ll also have some short demonstrations to show how these differences might be useful to everyday users.
