How do you Architect your Robots? ROS Systems Paper #Robotics #Robots
At ICSE 2020, an interesting paper is being presented on How do you Architect your Robots? State of the Practice and Guidelines for ROS-based Systems.
The Robot Operating System (ROS) is the de-facto standard for robotic software. ROS was developed in 2007 as the development environment for the Willow Garage PR2 robot, but has proven useful for a wide variety of robots.
The paper presents an observational study aimed at (i) unveiling the state-of-the-practice for architecting ROS-based systems and (ii) providing guidance to roboticists about how to properly architect ROS-based systems.
As robots become important in more facets of our world, and their tasks become more complex, engineering their software to meet quality requirements such as safety and reliability becomes more critical.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
