Intel ROS 2 Projects

Intel® Robotics Open Source Project (Intel® ROS Project) to enable object detection/location/tracking, people detection, vehicle detection, industry robot arm grasp point analysis with kinds of Intel technologies and platforms, including CPU, GPU, Intel® Movidius™ NCS optimized deep learning backend, FPGA, Intel® RealSense™ camera, etc.

Key Projects

We are working on below ROS 2 projects and publish source code through or ROS 2 GitHub repo gradually.

  • ROS2 OpenVINO: ROS 2 package for Intel® Visual Inference and Neural Network Optimization Toolkit to develop multiplatform computer vision solutions.

  • ROS2 RealSense Camera: ROS 2 package for Intel® RealSense™ D400 serial cameras

  • ROS2 Movidius NCS: ROS 2 package for object detection with Intel® Movidius™ Neural Computing Stick (NCS).

  • ROS2 Object Messages: ROS 2 messages for object.

  • ROS2 Object Analytics: ROS 2 package for object detection, tracking and 2D/3D localization.

  • ROS2 Message Filters: ROS 2 package for message synchronization with time stamp.

  • ROS2 CV Bridge: ROS 2 package to bridge with openCV.

  • ROS2 Object Map: ROS 2 package to mark tag of objects on map when SLAM based on information provided by ROS 2 object analytics.

  • ROS2 Moving Object: ROS 2 package to provide object motion information (like object velocity on x, y, z axis) based on information provided by ROS 2 object analytics.

  • ROS2 Grasp Library: ROS 2 package for grasp position analysis, and compatible with MoveIt grasp interfaces.

  • ROS2 Navigation: ROS 2 package for robot navigation, it’s already integrated to ROS 2 Crystal release.

  • Intel Robot DevKit (SDK): An open source project which enables developers to easily and efficiently create, customize, optimize, and deploy a robot software stack to an Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR) platform based on the Robot Operating System 2 (ROS 2) framework.
