our robot roots

Willow Garage & ROS

Fetch Robotics CEO Melonee Wise was the second employee at famed robotics lab Willow Garage, where she helped create the Robot Operating System (ROS), the PR2 robot, as well as the Turtlebot. Since the launch of these products, they have become the standard tools used for robotics research and development.

Our short form video “Build Something,” which originally debuted at ROS World 2020, chronicles Melonee’s journey in the field of robotics and automation.
