Announcing H-ROS: the Hardware Robot Operating System

I’m delighted to announce a new game-changing standard for building robot components, H-ROS: the Hardware Robot Operating System. H-ROS provides manufacturers tools for building interoperable robot components that can easily be exchanged or replaced between robots. H-ROS is about supporting a common environment of robot hardware components, where manufacturers comply with standard interfaces built on ROS.

Powered by the popular Robot Operating System and built with industry and developers in mind, H-ROS classifies robot components in 5 types: sensing — used to perceive the world, actuation — allow interaction with the environment, communication — provide a means of interconnection,cognition — the brain of the robot and hybrid — components that group together different sub-components under a common interface. This building-block-style parts come as reusable and reconfigurable components allowing developers, to easily upgrade their robots with hardware from different manufacturers and add new features in seconds.
