Madrid, July 2020

eProsima is happy to announce the release of micro-ROS Foxy and its compatibility with ROS 2 Foxy and Fast DDS 2.x.

micro-ROS forms an extension of the Robot Operating System (ROS) for microcontrollers. It enables the user to seamlessly integrate embedded devices into the ROS 2 ecosystem.

The small brother of ROS runs on the following real time operating systems (RTOS): NuttX, FreeRTOS and Zephyr. micro-ROS uses the eProsima middleware Micro XRCE-DDS and thus gives the possibility to port ROS 2 to different hardware targets with low memory or computing resources by allowing them to use the same entities like publishers, subscribers or services.

Further new features and improvements are:

  • New RCLC API with complete set of examples and new LET executors
  • New support for FreeRTOS and Zephyr v2.3.0
  • New support for Crazyflie 2.1 Drone and ST Discovery IoT kit (B-L475E-IOT01A)
  • Bug fixes and improvements in RMW and Micro XRCE-DDS client library
