Our Completed Projects

We address a variety of issues in the areas of design development and test/homologation services.

Development with robot control ROS 2 middleware

日本語ページはこちら

What led to the introduction of the service?

Due to the fact that the robotics middleware, Robot Operating System (ROS), has shifted to ROS 2, they sought to develop a product that uses ROS 2. However, generic devices did not yet support ROS 2, so they had to propose the in-house development of the system. Also, since they are in the transition period from ROS to ROS 2, we looked into robot control using ROS and ROS 2 together.

Issues before introduction

However, the customer had no knowledge of ROS 2 development, nor did we have the know-how necessary to develop in a way that uses both ROS and ROS 2. Therefore, with our extensive experience in ROS and ROS 2 development, they asked PERSOL RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT to develop the system.

Examples of use after introduction

As a medium to propose their own development, they were able to develop a demonstration product that realized robot control with ROS 2.

Effectiveness and achieved results

The issue of generic devices not supporting ROS 2 was resolved by making low-cost microcomputers costing less than 2,000 yen behave as ROS 2 nodes and turning them into IoT devices. In addition, by using the ros1_bridge package, they were able to propose a platform where ROS and ROS 2 can coexist. Using the ros1_bridge package, they are also currently transitioning from ROS to ROS 2.
