ArmarX – A Full Stack Robot Software Framework: From Real-Time Control to Symbolic Planning

In recent years, very complex systems have emerged, above all in service robotics and in assistant robotics. Due to better sensor technology, new methods of perception, efficient methods of localization and map generation as well as cognitive system components have been developed. Another aspect that supports this positive trend is the large number of open source robotic libraries. For example, the Robot Operating System – developed by Willow Garage – allows researchers to build basic systems faster. Secondly, it has helped to improve the reusability and integrability of large collections of community-driven robotic components. However, the growing complexity of robotic systems still poses a major challenge. Starting with a suitable embedded architecture, supporting control software development through powerful frameworks to control architecture, a suitable system design must be found to enable an efficient development process, and non-functional ones Features such as real-time capability, reliability, scalability or security. The workshop takes up this topic. Scientists working in these fields of research will present their latest scientific findings during the workshop. In addition, scientific questions are to be worked out that have so far been inadequately or not solved.
