In the RAPP project we work on the development of a software platform to support the creation and delivery of robotics applications. By adding a middleware stack with added functionalities suitable for different kinds of robots, software developers will be using high level commands to access the robot’s sensors and actuators.
This open source cloud-based platform is a three-tier system using a ROS-based cloud, a robot API/SDK, and a robotic application store for distribution and execution of apps on Linux-based robots. The platform also enables different types of robots to communicate and exchange information, and thus to learn from each other.
To learn more about the RAPP platform download the white paper that describes its architecture, functionalities, and application domains.
