eProsima presented “communicating with ROS robots using Fast RTPS” at FIWARE Summit 2017 (May 29-31, 2017 – Utrech)

eProsima Fast RTPS has been adopted by ROS (Robot Operating System) as their default middleware because its performance and features. Fast RTPS is also part of the FIWARE platform, a set of components to create smart applications.

We presented how to use Fast RTPS to connect to Robots and create distributed smart robotic applications.

The FIWARE platform provides a rather simple yet powerful set of APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) that ease the development of Smart Applications in multiple vertical sectors. The specifications of these APIs are public and royalty-free. Besides, an open source reference implementation of each of the FIWARE components is publicly available so that multiple FIWARE providers can emerge faster in the market with a low-cost proposition.

The FIWARE Catalogue contains a rich library of components (Generic Enablers) with reference implementations that allow developers to put into effect functionalities such as the connection to the Internet of Things or Big Data analysis, making programming much easier. All of them are public, royalty-free and open source!
