At iRobot we are proud to offer state-of-the-art robotic systems at an accessible price. In order to do so, we constantly face several challenges in terms of constrained resources and scalability. The quickly growing popularity of ROS2 and its features make it very appealing to consumer robotics companies. This presentation will describe the journey we took to explore ROS2 and the contributions we made to improve it, reaching to the performance target required for running full navigation solutions on thousands of resource-constrained robots.
