Nvidia and Open Robotics announced a partnership to enhance the ROS 2 (Robot Operating System) development suite. The partnership essentially combines the two most powerful robotics development environments and the two largest groups of robotics developers.

First released in 2010, ROS has been a key open-source platform for robotics developers supported by various companies in a variety of industries and government research organizations like DARPA and NASA. While the platform has continued to grow and includes the Ignition simulation environment, it has been primarily targeting traditional CPU computing models. Over the past several years, however, Nvidia has pioneered heterogeneous and AI computing for IoT and edge applications through the development of its Jetson platforms, software development kits (SDKs) like Isaac for robotics, toolkits like…
