The collaboration will integrate wireless 5G network technologies with ROS2 platforms to provide system architecture facilitating real-time control and fast, robust communication. ROS2 is intended to bring high-efficiency middleware for data exchange and is becoming a popular API standard for smart robotics development. ADLINK has developed a uniform data exchange environment for factories using DDS (Data Distribution Service) as a backbone.
FFG will build the world’s first demo production line for Factories of the Future, implementing a fast and reliable ROS2-based data exchange. ADLINK will use AI technologies to develop robot controllers with vision, detection, precision control and real-time communication capabilities as open source tools.
