eProsima webinar - The Use of DDS Middleware in RoboticsOn June 17th eProsima will hold a webinar hosted by the Fiware Foundation. The Fiware Foundation offers a series of free webinars about open source platform components for Smart Solutions and eProsima is happy to present “The Use of DDS Middleware in Robotics”.

This webinar will give an introduction about Fast DDS - the most complete open source dds middleware for ROS 2, and about Micro XRCE-DDS - a lightweight dds middleware for microcontrollers and micro-ROS.

ROS stands for Robot Operating System and is an open source project of Open Robotics, formerly known as the Open Source Robotics Foundation. The Robot Operating System, the de facto standard robotic framework, helps to build robot applications by offering software libraries and tools, besides the support of a huge community.

micro-ROS is a robot operating system specifically tailored for embedded and resource-constrained platforms, such as microcontrollers. While inheriting most of its key features and architecture from ROS 2, its more famously known elder ‘brother’, micro-ROS bridges seamlessly the ‘macro’ and the ‘micro’ robotics worlds. micro-ROS is the result of a project called OFERA and received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020.

About eProsima:

eProsima is an SME company focused on networking middleware with special attention to the OMG standard called Data Distribution Service for Real-time systems (DDS).

eProsima believes in the open source model and provides such middleware solutions as eProsima Fast DDS that is adopted by ROS 2 and eProsima Micro XRCE-DDS that gives access to DDS for eXtreme Resource Constrained Environments: Microcontrollers and which is the base of micro-ROS. Its other products eProsima RPC over DDS, eProsima Integration Service, eProsima Non-Intrusive DDS Recorder, eProsima Dynamic Fast Buffers or eProsima Shapes Demo are widely used as well.
