Robust, Fault-Tolerant Multi-Hardware Communication Protocol for Robotics

Communication methods in modern robotic systems typically connect multiple sensors, actuators, micro-controllers, and embedded PCs. There are several ways in hard- and software to communicate inside and between robots. In many cases a communication middlewares are used introducing extra protocols.

Although a lot of middleware solutions are available, they either introduce communication overhead or are designed and optimized for a specific domain other than robotics. But robots also have very specific requirements that have to be taken into account.

This presentation introduces concepts for protocols to be used in communication middlewares that is specialized for robotics. They provide a failure-tolerant communication that can communicate transparently with different kinds of communication hardware.

In der Regel sind die Vorträge Teil von Lehrveranstaltungsreihen der Universität Bremen und nicht frei zugänglich. Bei Interesse wird um Rücksprache mit dem Sekretariat unter sek-ric(at)dfki.de gebeten.
