eProsima is the Renesas Partner of the month

eProsima feels honored to have been chosen partner of the month for May 2022 as part of Renesas RA Partner ecosystem due to its work and support of micro-ROS in regards to the RA family.

This honor reinforces the reliability of the micro-ROS framework and the increasing presence of embedded components in open source robotics applications. 

eProsima and Renesas partnership started last year with the port of the micro-ROS library to Renesas RA MCUs, and a full integration in the e2 studio build system. This facilitates the development of embedded robotics in Renesas RA family MCUs focused on Industry 4.0 and Industrial IoT applications. 

The micro-ROS framework allows a standardized integration of MCUs into the Robot Operating System (ROS) 2 data space. It provides an established application development framework based on standard communication middleware to the embedded world.

RA family is the recommended MCU for which eProsima provides technical support. This family of MCUS targets Service robots for Logistics, Defense & Security, Agriculture and Healthcare applications.

“It is an honor to be chosen by Renesas as Partner of the month”, said Jaime Martin, eProsima CEO. “Renesas has been a key partner for eProsima and for micro-ROS industrial endorsement. It also shows that embedded robotics is taking a step into marketable industrial solutions. Being Renesas partner of the month right before the Embedded World represents the robotics trend leading to the combination of CPUS and MCUs in robotics applications.” 

Renesas and micro-ROS will be present in the Embedded World Conference 2022 which is held in Nuremberg on June 21-23.
