Designed specifically for ROS 2, the roscore-v RISC-V microcontroller promises reduced latencies and new real-time capabilities.

Performance-boosting specialist Acceleration Robotics has announced a partnership with Germany’s PlanV, which will see the pair building a microcontroller specifically for Robot Operating System (ROS) 2 robotics projects, using the free and open source RISC-V architecture as the basis.

“Though microcontrollers are generally accepted as programmable specialized devices, most MCUs [Microcontroller Units] used in robotics today have general purpose building blocks,” explains Acceleration Robotics founder Víctor Mayoral-Vilches of the problem the companies are looking to solve. “There is not much robotics-specific in any of them.”
