Bosch's Research and Technology Center (RTC) in nearby Palo Alto has been using and developing ROS software for several years and has the distinction of being the only non-university recipient of a Willow Garage PR2 as part of the PR2 Beta Program.


DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) is funding OSRF's development of the Gazebo robot simulator, which will be used extensively in the DARPA Robotics Challenge.

Google ATAP

We're working with Google's ATAP group to bring software tools from the ROS ecosystem to bear on Project Tango.


MathWorks supports OSRF with donated software licenses to develop and support improved integration between MATLAB and ROS/Gazebo. MathWorks is the leading developer of mathematical computing software.


We learned at ROSCon 2012 that the Robonaut team is extensively using ROS and Gazebo. With support from NASA under the National Robotics Initiative, we hope to help them put ROS in space.


Qualcomm is supporting OSRF's work to improve support for ROS on embedded ARM/Linux and ARM/Android platforms, in particular the Snapdragon processor.

Rethink Robotics

Rethink Robotics's Baxter robot is, in the words of CEO Scott Eckert, "built upon ROS."Rethink has given back to the ROS community with a generous donation to OSRF to support our work.
