Hi all,

Once more time, ROS 2 Embedded Working Group meeting is here!

Next week, the 27th of June will be the 28th EWG meeting. Register here!

This time we’ll have two fantastic talks:

Yasushi Shoji, Co-founder and CEO of Space Cubics, as he dives into the world of the Zephyr-modularized version of micro-ROS. This approach eliminates the need for Colcon or Ament, offering a simplified experience. With Zephyr modules like rclc and Micro XRCE-DDS-client at its core, this version empowers Zephyr users with enhanced project visibility and seamless customization using familiar tools like West and Kconfig.

Russell Joyce, a Robotics and Embedded Systems Research Engineer at Microsoft, as he provides a concise overview of Microsoft Research’s Project Silica. Discover how this groundbreaking project leverages the power of ROS and micro-ROS to develop prototype robotics for the next era of data center storage libraries. Delve into the exciting world where robotics, cutting-edge technologies, and data storage converge in this enlightening presentation.

Meet us at the usual Google Meet room!

Hello ROS Community!

Here is a heads-up for October: There won’t be an Embedded Working Group meeting this month. Why, you ask? Because we’re gearing up for ROSCon’22, and we can’t wait to meet you there!

And for those of you who can’t make it this time, don’t worry!
We’ll be back with our next EWG meeting in November.
See you then!

Hi everyone,

Exciting news! Our 30th EWG meeting is just around the corner, scheduled for 2023-11-28T16:00:00Z. In our upcoming session, we will delve into the fascinating topics of Safe DDS & AMD KR260 Starter Kit.

Register for the 30th EWG Meeting

Pablo Garrido from eProsima will present a demo highlighting the utilization of Safe DDS across all three cores of the AMD KR260 platform – Cortex A53, Cortex R5, and MicroBlaze FPGA-softcore.

Safe DDS is a middleware communications implementation following the ISO 26262 certification standard and providing access to the DDS world. The development platform for Kria K26 is built for robotics and industrial applications, complete with high-performance interfaces and native ROS 2 support for ease of development by roboticists and software developers.

Take advantage of this opportunity to explore Safe DDS running in the AMD KR260 Starter Kit.

Stay tuned, and don´t miss the next meeting!

At this upcoming meeting, we have an engaging talk:

Farhang Naderi, Co-Founder & Chief Tech Officer at Caretta Robotics, will talk about two projects: Machine Learning based object tracking and State estimation using uXRCE-DDS and PX4. The first project is a blend of top-notch technology, including PX4 Autopilot, ROS2, Pixhawk 6X, and Micro XRCE-DDS, aimed at highly accurate drone positioning and navigation. The second project combines Pixhawk, Raspberry Pi CM4, ROS2, and Micro XRCE-DDS, focusing on the ability of drones to track and follow objects in real-time. These developments significantly advance how drones operate and interact with their surroundings.
