The ROS Awards are the Oscars of the ROS world! The intention of these awards is to express recognition for contributions to the ROS community and the development of the ROS-based robot industry, and to help those contributions gain awareness.

Conditions

  • Selection of the winners is made by anonymous online voting over a period of 2 weeks
  • Anybody in the ROS community can vote through the voting enabled website
  • Organizers of the awards provide an initial list of 10 possible projects for each category but the list can be increased at any time by anybody during the voting period
  • Since the Awards are organized by The Construct none of its products or developers can be voted
  • Winners are announced at the ROS Developers Day yearly conference
  • New on 2022 edition: Winners of previous editions cannot win again, in order to not concentrate the focus on the same projects all the time. Remember, with these awards, we want to help spread all ROS projects!

Voting

  1. Every person can only vote once in each category
  2. You cannot change your answers once you have submitted your vote
  3. Voting is closed 3 days before the conference, and a list of the finalists per each category is announced in the same week
  4. Voters cannot use flaws in the system to influence voting. Any detection of trying to trick the system will disqualify the votes. You can, though, promote your favorite among your networks so others vote for it.

Measures have been taken to prevent as much as possible batch voting from a single person.

Insights from the 2022 Edition

  1. This year, the third time we organise the awards, we have increased the total number of votes by 500% So we can say that the winners are a good representation of the feelings of the community.
  2. Still this year, the winners of previous editions received many votes. Fortunately, we applied the new rule of not allowing to win previous winners, to provide space for other ROS projects have the focus on the community, and hence help to create a rich ROS ecosystem.

Conclusions

The ROS Awards started in 2020 with a first edition where the winners were some of the best and well-known projects in the ROS world. In this third edition, we have massively increased the number of votes from the previous edition. We expect this award will continue to contribute to the spreading of good ROS projects.

See you again at ROS Awards 2023!
