micro-ROS is an open source project to realize ROS 2, the second generation of ROS (Robot Operating System) on a microcontroller in various robot applications. By using a common framework, it enables interoperability with conventional robots, IoT sensors and devices.

micro-ROS Solutions Overview


RA6M5 micro-ROS Solution

Renesas is collaborating with eProsima, a leading provider of micro-ROS frameworks, to develop a ROS-based robot body controller based on RA6M5, which will simplify the design process by providing an optimal platform for micro-ROS implementation. The RA6M5-based micro-ROS project will also contribute to reducing the risk in the design of various applications, such as service robots for logistics and warehousing, security, agriculture, and healthcare.
