RT-Middleware Tutorial for Beginners in SICE 2020

sice2020.png

Overview

Due to the change of SICE 2020 to online, RT-Middleware tutorial also will be held as an online tutorial.

RT-Middleware is a software platform that streamlines the development of robot, IoT and distributed control and measurement systems. Since a robot system is constructed by combining a large number of modularized software called RT-Components, it is easy to change and expand the system, as well as inheriting existing software assets and components created by others. The seminar will explain the outline of RT-Middleware and how to create RT-Components. Students will be required to prepare their own PCs and actually create RT-Components in a practical format, and combine them with existing components to construct a simple system. By taking this course, you will be able to master the RT-Component design method, implementation method, and system integration method. This course will be held online by using Zoom.

Program

11:00 -11:50 ICT
(13:00-13:50 JST)
Part 1: Overview of OpenRTM-aist and RT-Component programming
Lecturer:Noriaki Ando (AIST)
Outline: RT-Middleware (OpenRTM-aist) is a software platform for building robot systems in a component-oriented manner. By using RT-Middleware, existing components can be reused and a module-oriented flexible robot system can be constructed. This section describes the outline of RT-Middleware and the functions and programming flow of RT-Components.
