Wyca Robotics has chosen micro-ROS for the development of Elodie. This ROS 2 powered self-driving indoor robot relies on micro-ROS to ease communications in a resource constrained device environment.

Elodie is the latest production-level robot of WYCA Robotics, a French company born in 2015 operating in the field of Robotics, AI, and autonomous navigation committed to developing different kinds of indoor mobile robots for several industries: retail, logistics, security, health (air disinfection), digital signage… This complete and versatile ROS 2 powered self-driving robot finds in micro-ROS the best ally to adapt to a resource constrained device environment allowing Wyca engineers to focus on ROS 2 integration while micro-ROS handles data distribution communication complexity and increases interoperability for peripheral devices: sonars, led and BMS.



Elodie is extremely versatile and makes an ideal multi-purpose helper in many business applications, as it can perform a wide variety of tasks such as carrying a client-tailored custom top part adapted to a diversity of purposes such as assistance, security building, products carriage, surface disinfection, and more. To perform these tasks, Elodie is equipped with numerous sensors, actuators, and cameras, all operated by MCUs and interfaced with an on-board computer. Precisely here is where micro-ROS comes into play, easing the communication between all these parts and the central processor, running ROS 2.


Wyca engaged with eProsima via gitHub to learn about micro-ROS and its default middleware Micro XRCE-DDS, and accelerate their replacement of ROS 1 ROS serial implementation with micro-ROS to communicate their Teensy board.
