ROS2 The speed of development and promotion is much faster than expected , Before in the blog :

mention 2020 It was the first year of the popularity of commercial robot operating systems , I thought it was just the beginning , The result is already blooming everywhere , It's out of time to change with each passing day , The exaggeration is “ Second new differentiation ”.

ADLINK will incorporate AI technologies to develop robot controllers with vision, detection, precision control and real-time communication capabilities as open source tools, thereby generating new smart manufacturing standardisation of ROS2 as a common platform for mobile robots. ADLINK looks to introduce more than 200 innovative smart robotics products by 2025.

A company's goal is to 2025 More than five years ago 200 Innovative intelligent robot products !

Maybe AI Time , The speed of knowledge iteration will be so fast , Biological intelligence has come to the end of its own destiny .

Maybe some people don't believe , More people will question . say AI It's weak , Not yet , Robots are also very cute !

So think about it , Each of us now sits in front of the computer and looks at the cell phone screen time , From the past 40 Until now ( from 1980 From , At that time, computers can be compared to television sets ), Is it getting longer and longer !

let me put it another way , We've been bound by electronics and the Internet , future , Are you confident that using computers, mobile phones and robots is getting shorter and shorter ???

I won't , It's just going to become more and more dependent on these electronics , Getting more and more involved ^_^

American enterprises are undoubtedly the biggest winners this year :

Ericsson

5G Become news :5G Router , Mobile devices , Telephone network support …… There it is .

Any communication middleware can make 5G As a data link , also ROS 2 Will be in these networks “ Open the box ” Ground work , But Ericsson put forward some suggestions to make ROS 2 Use 5G The idea of advanced features .

5G Routers can be different channels ( Also known as unique network flow ) Make sure different QoS. You can do something , For example, reserved bandwidth , Ensure low latency, etc . All you have to do is create a unique network stream in your application , And in 5G Set up in the network QoS.

To simplify the process , Ericsson and eProsima Enabled local ROS 2 Support to create unique network flows , We will present some of the results in the next middleware working group . When we're in Fast DDS Level creation function , Ericsson is working for RMW Provide support .

Users can quickly use this feature , meanwhile , We're going to post more complete blog posts , It contains some technical details .
