How open source ROS2 can be used in developing better software for AGVs?
ROS2 enabling co-operation
From Navitec’s perspective, this is the first time we are using ROS2 together with our in-house build proprietary software called Navitrol. Navitrol provides localization and control for the AGVs. Navitec also offers fleet control called Navithor for controlling the fleet of AGVs. In PEAMS project we want to use standard interfaces provided by ROS2 to communicate with software provided by GIM Robotics and Atostek. We assume that open standards will make integration smoother and allow different companies to offer software components that run on the same AGV. This will be demonstrated at the end of the project in a live demonstration at Logisnext facilities in Järvenpää where AGVs from K. Hartwall and Logisnext will be driving in the real live demo.
