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.
