Dear Participant:

My name is Pablo Estefó and I am a PhD student at the Universidad de Chile. As part of my thesis, I am investigating the phenomenon of package reuse within the Robot Operating System (ROS) community and the collaboration dynamics of this community. As you have worked with ROS, I am inviting you to participate in this research study by completing the attached survey.

The following questionnaire will require approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. All answers are confidential, data will only be shared in an aggregated form. Participation is strictly voluntary and you may refuse to participate at any time. If you would like a summary of the data collected, please enter your e-mail at the end of the survey. Three Amazon Gift Cards will be raffled among participants that enter their e-mail address asked at the end of the survey.

Thank you for taking the time to assist me in my educational endeavors. If you have any questions, please contact us at the e-mails listed below.
