ADLINK Technology is now part of the Open Robotics ROS 2 Technical Steering Committee. The Robot Operating System (ROS) is the world’s leading open source resource for roboticists. The ROS 2 TSC sets the technical direction for open robotics and is made of organizations actively contributing to the development and success of ROS 2.
ADLINK’s contributions to the ROS 2 TSC are focused on:
- ROS Middleware (RMW) improvements for flexibility & performance via OMG Data Distribution Service (DDS) capabilities & best practices.
- ROS 2 contributions for open source Vortex OpenSplice and Eclipse Cyclone DDS, an open source Eclipse IoT project that is suited for autonomous mobile robots (AMR).
- Working to establish an Edge AI Working Group with fellow TSC members and contributing deep expertise in edge AI for machine vision.
The ROS 2 TSC was launched in Sept. 2018 to broaden participation in ROS 2 development and accelerate ROS 2 delivery. Current members include ADLINK Technology, Amazon, Apex.AI, Arm, Bosch, Canonical, eProsima, Intel, LG Electronics, Microsoft, Open Robotics, ROBOTIS, Samsung, TARDEC, Tier IV and the Toyota Research Institute.
