ROS 2 on Microcontrollers with micro-ROS & Zephyr 🦾 // Zephyr Tech Talk #011

By January 22, 2024No Comments

Tune in on Wednesday, Feb. 7, 2024 (9:00 AM EST / 3:00 PM CET) for a new Zephyr Tech Talk live stream, where Benjamin will be joined by Dave Rensberger from Beechwoods Software, to talk about all things robotics and Zephyr.

ROS 2 is a very popular open source robotics framework which allows to build and orchestrate very complex robotics systems. In this Tech Talk, we’ll dive into micro-ROS, a microcontroller-optimized client API for ROS2 which allows to bake even more intelligence into the low-power sensors that may be part of a robotics application.

Dave and his team recently looked into using micro-ROS on Zephyr and since they got to play with quite a few neat Zephyr features, they thought they would share 😉 We’ll look at the Raspberry Pi PicoW specifically, from how to use PIO/SPI to interface with sensors, to a preview of upcoming Wi-Fi support, to integration as part of a complete ROS 2 setup, with a Linux-based agent in charge of the higher-level processing.

As usual, the session will be heavily demo-focused, with plenty of time for you to ask questions directly through our live chat!

Zephyr Tech Talks are live streams organized by and for the Zephyr community. Join us live to get a chance to ask your questions directly to our guests, or simply catch up the recording anytime afterwards!
