micro-ROS Release

We are thrilled to announce the release of micro-ROS Version 2, the new version of the framework that brings ROS 2 into microcontrollers.

Find below a detailed list of the many key enhancements and dedicated features developed for this new version.

 

RELEASE HIGHLIGHTS

This new version of micro-ROS includes the new enhancements and features listed below, making this version suitable for the new ROS Galactic.

  • ROS 2 Parameter server 
  • Throughput optimization via continuous fragment mode and Big write ( 64 kB) tweak. This out-of-standard tweak allows micro-ROS nodes to publish messages exceeding that 64kB (maximum topic size when publishing and subscribing according to standard)
  • Agent multiserial transport. It allows the connection of multiple micro-ROS nodes that use a serial transport to the same micro-ROS Agent. 
  • Static type introspection handler and C99 type support helpers
  • Mbed RTOS 6.8 / 6.9 / 6.10 support and NuttX 10.0 / 10.1 support
  • Support for the new Arduino Nano RP2040 Connect, the first Arduino with Raspberry Pi silicon, with WiFi, Bluetooth and built-in sensors
