A RISC-V MCU to for ROS2

roscore-v – this is the name of the latest project we’ve started together with Acceleration Robotics, a Spanish robotics semiconductor startup that designs robot compute architectures to make robots faster.

The roscore-v project aims to optimize the ROS processing flow by creating a native ROS 2 hardware implementation in an RISC-V MCU, a dedicated hardware accelerator that supports the computations needed for robotics.

The project will be developed as part of the ROS 2 Hardware Acceleration Working Group and powered by one of the OpenHW Group‘s CORE-V CPUs.
The plan is to start by developing an FPGA prototype, which will be converted into a custom chip in a second stage.
