ADLINK Technology, has joined the ROS-Industrial (ROS-I) Consortium Asia Pacific. ROS-Industrial is an open source project that extends the advanced capabilities of the Robot Operating System (ROS) software to manufacturing. The company will be lending its expertise in data connectivity standards to the advancement of robotics.
The ROS-I Consortium APAC aims to encourage the adoption of advanced robotics and automation in Asia Pacific. It is a worldwide, collaborative effort to simplify the vast complexity surrounding the development of robot platforms.
ADLINK is the first member of the ROS-Industrial Consortium Asia Pacific. It’s IoT technology team and solutions have longstanding expertise and thought leadership with the Object Management Group’s (OMG) Data Distribution Services (DDS) standard. They are ideal for business-critical IoT systems. DDS is at the core of ROS 2, the newest version of the ROS project currently under development, making ADLINK the right fit for providing support and guidance on this project.
“ROS has the potential to be as disruptive for robotics frameworks as Linux was for operating systems – we want to help make this disruption happen,” said Angelo Corsaro, CTO, ADLINK Technology.
Tens of thousands of users around the world are now working on the open source project ROS 2 Ardent Apalone. Industry collaboration is crucial when it comes to harnessing the strengths of open source for software development and hardware integration.
