ROS Introduction

ROS is the abbreviation of robot operating system. ROS is a highly flexible software architecture for writing robot software programs.

Notice:

  • Currently, myCobot 280 seriesmyCobot 320 seriesmyPalletizer 260 seriesmechArm 270 series support the use of ROS. for specific situation of the development of various equipment, refer to equipment development.
  • Burn the corresponding firmware by using mystudio. Burn the minirobot in M5Stack-basic, choose the transponder function, and burn the latest version of atomMain in atom.

ROS is of open source and is a post-operating system or secondary operating system for controlling robots. It provides the functions similar to those provided by an operating system, including hardware abstraction description, low-level driver management, execution of common functions, messages transferred between programs, and program release package management. It also provide some tool programs and libraries used to get, create, write and run multi-machine integration programs.

The primary design goal of ROS is to improve the code reuse rate in the R&D field of robots. ROS is a framework (i.e. "nodes") for distributed processes, which are encapsulated in program and function packages that can be easily shared and distributed. ROS also supports a federated system similar to a code repository, and this system also enables the collaboration and distribution of a project. This design enables the development and realization of a project to to be decided completely independently from the file system to the user interface (no limit by ROS). At the same time, all projects can be integrated with the basic tools of ROS.

Applicable equipment:

  • myCobot 280
    • myCobot 280 M5
    • myCobot 280 PI
    • myCobot 280 Jetson Nano
    • myCobot 280 for Arduino
  • myCobot 320
    • myCobot 320 M5
    • myCobot 320 PI
  • myPalletizer 260
    • myPalletizer 260 M5
    • myPalletizer 260 PI
  • myCobot PRO 600
  • mechArm-270
    • mechArm-270 M5
    • mechArm-270 PI

Preconditions for use:

  • M5 series version, the bottom M5Stack-basic is programmed to miniRobot , select the Transponder function, and the end ATOM is programmed to the latest version of atomMain (the factory default has been programmed)
  • Pi \ jetsonnano series, ATOM burns the latest version of atomMain (factory default already burnt)

Device Description:

  • Among the devices used above, mechArm-270 PI、myCobot 280-Pi, myCobot 280-JetsonNano, and myCobot 320-Pi versions have their own Ubantu (V-18.04) system and have a built-in development environment, so they can be used directly without setting up management.

    Note: mechArm-270 PI currently does not support ROS2

  • MyCobot 280-M5, myCobot 320-M5, myCobot 280-Arduino, myPalletizer 260, and mechArm-270-M5 versions need to be built in an environment, but in ROS, you only need to build a ROS environment.
