Renesas are pleased to announce that RA6M5 Evaluation Kit for RA MCUs becomes the official supported hardware platform of the micro-ROS. Renesas teamed with eProsima to port micro-ROS into RA MCUs and the kit has been added to the supported line up. All resource is available on micro-ROS official site including build system and tutorial videos. You can find press release from Renesas here.
Great disruptive solution that provides an eclipse environment that covers the full development cycle of embedded applications in ROS 2. This will strongly impact on reducing the time-to-market of robotics solutions across many different sectors.
The Renesas RA6M5 based micro-ROS project offers HIL (hardware in the loop) testing CD/CI and integration with the e² studio, an Eclipse-based integrated development environment (IDE) that enables developers a professional embedded software environment.
The objective of this HW & SW combo project is to provide a comprehensive tool that covers the full cycle of SW development in embedded systems that target a wide range of applications: Service robots for Logistic & Warehouse, Defense & Security, Agriculture and Healthcare.
