OSRF builds, hosts, and maintains the infrastructure to provide binary ROS packages for the community. There are over 1000 packages in multiple distributions and on many different platforms. These packages allow you and your robots, large and small, to take advantage of the best open tools in computer vision, planning, manipulation, obstacle avoidance, visualization, and debugging. If you find these packages useful, please consider supporting OSRF to help us be able to continue providing these packages.
Direct support from our community allows us to focus on providing services to the communty.
If OSRF were to receive one penny for each downloaded package for just two months, we could cover our annual costs to manage, update, and host all of our online services. A donation of just $2 would cover the cost of an average user's downloads for a year. Donations in any amount are welcome.
