Automaton reader Ingo Ltkebohle is a PhD student at Bielefeld University in Germany studying how roboticists develop their software. His team has posted a survey for software developers to complete. An initial pilot study has already been done and those results will be presented at this year's IEEE Conference on Robotics and Automation. This survey is part of the larger study, so they need a broader audience to respond to it.
You can take the survey here.
