ADLINK Technology is now part of the ROS 2 Technical Steering Committee (TSC) organized by Open Robotics
. 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 Eclipse Cyclone DDS, an open source Eclipse IoT project that is suited for autonomous mobile robots (AMR), and open source Vortex OpenSplice for large, complex systems.
- Working to establish an Edge AI Working Group with fellow TSC members and contributing deep expertise in edge AI for machine vision.
"We're excited by ADLINK’s contributions and to have them join the ROS 2 TSC. Their contributions will help enable our vision of an open source robotics ecosystem." says Brian Gerkey, CEO of Open Robotics.
“ROS 2 is the future of robots, autonomous vehicles and industrial automation. It will be everywhere.” says Joe Speed, ADLINK Technology Field CTO, ROS 2 TSC representative and OMG board member.
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
- LG Electronics
- Open Robotics
- Tier IV
- Toyota Research Institute
