It’s time for our robot to make sense of what it can see.
Wind River Studio is a cloud native platform for the development, deployment, operations, and servicing of mission-critical intelligent systems from devices to cloud.
As Matt Jones, VP of Engineering at Wind River®, puts it, “You can have a secure system that is not safety critical, but you cannot have a safety-critical system that isn’t secure.”
In this episode of Embedded Toolbox, Part 3 of our "Let's Build a Robot Series," we begin integrating the Robot Operating System (ROS) into our VxWorks-based design. So, why use an operating system alongside an operating system?
Applications built on top of Real-Time Operating Systems (RTOS) are being incorporated into larger and more complex environments every day. A fighter jet, for example, has many different computer systems that could potentially be running different operating systems.
Software & OS
Today’s robotic systems are no longer the static ones of the past. They must be dynamic, with the ability to run different workloads, applications, and potentially even perform different tasks than they did when initially deployed. And they have to be able to acquire this new functionality without needing a field technician physically present to update them.
Software & OS
In this episode of Embedded Toolbox, the first of five in our “Let’s Build a Robot” series, Rob Woolley, Principal Technologist in the Technology Office at Wind River, lays out the drivers behind next-generation autonomous robot platforms built on frameworks like the Robot Operating System and capabilities like enterprise-class AI. He then proceeds to demonstrate how these software solutions can be supported on safety-critical edge robots using the VxWorks real-time operating system and docker containers.
