eProsima presented “Connecting to Robots” at FIWARE Summit 2016 (Dec 13-15, 2016 – Malaga)

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.

Madrid, November 2016

using std::cpp 2016 conference is an event focused in the latest news about the Cpp programming language. eProsima presented in the conference demonstrating how to connect distributed systems using Cpp and eProsima Fast RTPS.

Magma Solutions, a company focused on the development of Navigation and Imaging Systems for UAVs, has selected eProsima Fast RTPS for their AirVision Project.

Madrid, November 2016

eProsima announces the general availability of eProsima Shapes Demo 1.3.1.

Shapes Demo is an application that Publishes and Subscribes to shapes of different colors and sizes moving on a board. Each Shape conforms its own topic: Square, Triangle or Circle. A single instance of the Shapes Demo can publish on or subscribe to several topics at a time.

It can be used to demonstrate the capabilities of eProsima Fast RTPS or as an interoperability demonstrator with other implementations of the RTPS protocol.

Madrid, Nov 2016

eProsima was at the IoT Congress 2016 (Barcelona, 25-27 October 2016) presenting a Robotics Live Demo. We demonstrated how to automate a warehouse using simple robots powered by ROS2, the upcoming release of the Robotic Operating System. ROS2 uses our networking middleware, eProsima Fast RTPS, to connect the different components within and between robots.

Madrid, October 2016

The Robot Operating System (ROS) has announced in the ROSCON 2016 they adopt eProsima Fast RTPS as the default middleware for the upcoming release of ROS, known as ROS2.

Madrid, September 2016

FIWARE, a Leading Internet of Future platform will use eProsima Fast RTPS as protocol for Robotic, IoT and Critical Applications. Fast RTPS has become a FIWARE Generic Enabler, and is offered to FIWARE users as part of the platform.

Madrid, August 2016

eProsima announces the general availability of eProsima Fast RTPS 1.3.0. This release introduces several new features:

  • Unbound Arrays support: Now you can send variable size data arrays.
  • Extended Fragmentation Configuration: It allows you to setup a Message/Fragment max size different to the standard 64Kb limit.
  • Improved logging system: Get even more introspection about the status of your communications system.
  • Static Discovery: Use XML to map your network and keep discovery traffic to a minimum.
  • Stability and performance improvements: A new iteration of our built-in performance tests will make benchmarking easier for you.
  • ReadTheDocs Support: We improved our documentation format and now our installation and user manuals are available online on ReadTheDocs.

eProsima Fast RTPS is a high performance publish subscribe framework to share data in distributed systems using a decoupled model based on Publishers, Subscribers and Data Topics.

Madrid, June 2016

eProsima announces the general availability of eProsima Fast RTPS 1.2.0. This release introduces two important new features:

  • Flow Controllers: A mechanism to control how you use the available bandwidth avoiding data bursts. The controllers allow you to specify the maximum amount of data to be sent in a specific period of time. This is very useful when you are sending large messages requiring fragmentation.
  • Discovery Listeners: Now the user can subscribe to the discovery information to know the entities present in the network (Topics, Publishers & Subscribers) dynamically without prior knowledge of the system. This enables the creation of generic tools to inspect your system.

But there is more:

  • Full ROS2 Support: Fast RTPS is used by ROS2, the upcoming release of the Robot Operating System (ROS).
  • Better documentation: More content and examples.
  • Improved performance.
  • Bug fixing.

New License: Apache 2.0 - More Freedom.

Also this release introduces a license change from MPLv2 to Apache 2.0 License. This new license gives you more flexibility and freedom being Apache 2.0 one of the most permissive open source licenses.

Madrid, June 2016

eProsima announces the adoption of the Apache License 2.0 of the Apache Software Foundation for all its Open Source Products, including eProsima Fast RTPS and eProsima RPC over DDS.

Madrid, May 2016

eProsima announces the general availability of eProsima Fast RTPS 1.1.0. This release introduces two important new features:

  • Asynchronous Publishing Mode: This Publishing mode uses a separate thread to send your data, and returns the control to your user thread right after calling the write operation.
  • Large Data Support: Asynchronous publishing allows you to send Data Types larger than 64 Kbytes. The asynchronous publisher thread will take care of the fragmentation process.

But there is more:

  • VS 2015 Support
  • Better documentation: More content and examples.
  • Improved performance.
  • Bug fixing.

New License: More Freedom.

Also this release introduces a license change from LGPLv3 to MPLv2. This new license gives you more flexibility and freedom than LGPL allowing you to link statically eProsima Fast RTPS without considering the result a derivative work.
