ROS Enhances RTOS

Via support for the robot operating system (ROS) framework, Green Hills Software enables ROS developers on Linux to rapidly develop and deploy their applications using its INTEGRITY RTOS. The INTEGRITY RTOS is used extensively by automotive Tier 1s and OEMs, as well as various companies in the factory automation and robotics markets.

 

The Green Hills Software INTEGRITY RTOS and Multivisor virtualization provide ROS developers with a comprehensive, scalable solution for deploying software to meet functional safety standards including IEC 61508 SIL 4 and ISO 26262 ASIL D requirements. Application developers now have access to a scalable and flexible set of development paradigms that enable developers to start application development on their Linux-based computers, while continuously integrating software with actual embedded hardware in a hardware-in-the-loop configuration until all software is successfully integrated into the embedded platform.

EMBEDDED TECHNOLOGIES EXPO & CONFERENCE

The inaugural event will take place June 25-27 in San Jose, CA!

Embedded Technologies Expo & Conference (ETC), in the largest embedded and IoT market in North America, is the ONLY event focused on what is most important to designers and implementers – education and training. Attendees will experience over 100 hours of unparalleled education and training covering embedded systems, IoT, connectivity, edge computing, AI, machine learning, and more. Co-located with Sensors Expo & Conference, attendees will have the opportunity to see hundreds of leading exhibitors and network with thousands of industry peers and innovators.

 

The Multivisor virtualization software gives developers the option of running unmodified ROS applications in a virtualized Linux environment, either for transitionary purposes during development or non-safety-critical deployment. Portions or all a developer’s ROS applications can be migrated to the safety-certified INTEGRITY RTOS as needed. 

 

The MULTI integrated development environment (IDE) provides an advanced ISO 26262 ASIL D and IEC 61508 SIL 4 certified development environment upon which to build reliable and safe ROS applications. ROS developers can develop applications, even with hardware-in-the-loop, utilizing a single unified debug environment that is fully aware of both the underlying INTEGRITY or Linux operating systems and capable of simultaneously debugging both. MULTI provides ROS developers with a painless pathway to quickly transition ROS objects to actual hardware, and rapidly reduce the time they need to deploy production-grade software.

 

The Green Hills Software solution is designed to be ROS framework vendor independent, allowing customers to leverage Green Hills Software’s technology regardless of which ROS application framework they are working with. For more insights, visit Green Hills Software.
