Intrinsic, which is owned by Alphabet, has acquired several divisions of Open Robotics, the maker of the popular robotics software packages Gazebo and Robotic Operating System, just a few months after acquiring fellow robotic software company Vicarious (ROS).

Open Source Robotics Corporation (OSRC), the for-profit division of Open Robotics, and Open Source Robotics Corporation Singapore (OSRC-SG), the division of the company that spearheaded efforts on a project called Open-RMF for interoperability between fleets of robots and physical infrastructure, are specifically being acquired by Intrinsic (e.g. doors and elevators).
