We created a short report that summarizes the main trends of the study: <a class="attachment" href="/uploads/ros/original/1X/72be02a28b8d521970c86f1e69a8c189b18e748c.pdf">PDF</a> (62.7 KB)
We hope you find this information useful. If you have any follow-up questions or discussions, please post them in our new [Perception](https://discourse.ros.org/c/perception) category. And if you took the survey, thanks for helping be an important part of OSRF's feedback loop!

Excellent survey! Is it possible to begin centralizing survey results along with the already existing annual metrics?
I don't think that we want to gather survey results formally together since out of context they are not super valuable. Survey results are very useful way to gather input from the community. Usually this is done to help inform a specific decision making process. Once that decision has been made the survey results are generally interesting and can inform future decisions, but need to be considered in the context of where they were asked in the future.
The metrics reports are ongoing annual reports that are designed to provide that same sort of information in an ongoing fashion and are much more valuable when aggregated and used to generate trends. Whereas it's not particularly informative to compare the rosjava survey results to the computer vision survey results.
