Hi, I’m Yutaka Kondo from Preferred Robotics.
Today I would like to introduce the ROS 2 bridge of the smart furniture robot “Kachaka.”
As you may already know Kachaka is a completely new platform-based home robot.
The ways to use Kachaka expand with the types of furniture and household tasks.
Although it is a Japanese product, we are aiming for sales in America next year and are working on internationalization and compliance with certification standards.
ROS 2 bridge
We have also released a reference implementation of the ROS 2 bridge using the developer API of Kachaka.
Using this ROS 2 bridge, Kachaka can be treated as a ROS 2 mobile robot in a similar way to Turtlebots.
Please see the ROSCon JP 2023 presentation below. Kachaka moved by Nav 2.
