Two talks based on the results of ROSIN will be given at ROSCon 2019 in Macau on November 1st (day 2). At 10:10 listen to "ROS bugs later: Where do we go from here?" --- a reflection based on the analysis of past bugs in the ROS platform. What kinds of bugs do programmers encounter when developing ROS applications? Are those bugs unique to ROS? What can we do to avoid them? At 16:20, Andrzej Wasowski (ITU) will present RxROS: a thin reactive programming layer for ROS that allows to program nodes without callbacks and locks. This eliminates bugs like deadlocks and races by design

After a visit in the region of Cape Town by representatives of the city of Aachen and FH Aachen in context of the partnership between the two cities, it was decided to join forces in the field of mobile robotics. The Nelson Mandela University NMU located in Port Elizabath proclaimed there interest in a ROS-I School as they are already very advanced in automation and robotics, but still on a beginners level with ROS. Quick decisions were made and The NMU hosted the ROS Summer School (Winter there) in July 2019 for one week operated by FH Aachen. The 15 participants had all different levels including undergraduated and Ph.D. students. They learned the basics machanisms in ROS up to the level on how to program an autonomous driving robot.
