Madrid, January 2021

eProsima is happy to announce the integration of several Micro XRCE-DDS and micro-ROS packages into the ROS 2 common packages, specifically ROS REP-2005.

This achievement makes an integration of microcontrollers and sensors into the ROS 2 ecosystem much easier.

Packages being integrated into ROS 2 must be compliant with the following points:

  • Open source and connected to the ROS 2 project;
  • Broadly usable and evidently used by a nontrivial part of the community;
  • Actively maintained and following accepted software development processes;
  • At Quality Level 3 or better (as defined in REP-2004);
  • Maintained by an organization or at least two individuals;
  • Such that all of their ROS 2 dependencies also comply with the above.


The packages that form now part of ROS REP 2005 are:

ABOUT EPROSIMA MICRO XRCE-DDS:

Micro-XRCEDDS is an open source wire protocol developed by eProsima which provides access to the DDS Global-Data-Space for resource-constrained devices. This protocol implements the OMG DDS for eXtremely Resource Constrained Environment standard (DDS-XRCE).

ABOUT EPROSIMA AND MICRO-ROS:

eProsima is the coordinator of the EU-founded OFERA project. Together with the other OFERA members BOSCH, PIAP and the FIWARE Foundation, the project develops micro-ROS, a robotic framework that brings ROS 2 onto microcontrollers.
