Zenoh, an innovative and energy-efficient middleware, and Cyclone DDS, a best-in-class OMG DDS implementation, are poised to accelerate growth, innovation and adoption in robotics and autonomous vehicles
PARIS, October 13, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — ZettaScale Technology, an innovator of technologies for communicating, computing and storing at any scale, is showcasing its two highly anticipated and advanced protocols at ROSCon 2022. The company is showcasing Zenoh, which unifies data in motion, data at rest and computations from embedded microcontrollers to the data center. It will also showcase Cyclone DDS, a best-in-class OMG DDS implementation that combines DDS (Data Distribution Service) and TSN (Time Sensitive Networking) capabilities.
ZettaScale is positioned to serve as a key enabler for R2X and V2X applications through the significant advancements it brings in performance, power efficiency, scalability, and integration.
ROSCon 2022 is planned October 19 – 21 at the Kyoto International Conference Center in Kyoto, Japan. In addition to the demonstrations, ZettaScale, which is a gold sponsor of the event, will also present a technical document entitled “Zenoh: How to make ROS2 work at any scale and integrate with anything.” The article will look at how Zenoh can be leveraged to enable ROS2 communication over the internet, REST pub/sub to ROS2, ROS2-MQTT communication, and ROS2 record/replay.
At ROSCon, ZettaScale will demonstrate how Zenoh can be easily used to add real-time monitoring and teleoperation to existing ROS2-based robots, including real-time video streaming. The demonstration will also highlight how to easily integrate microcontrollers to extend the level of robot interactions with their environments. ZettaScale will also unveil a new dataflow framework, Zenoh-Flow, which facilitates the development of robot swarms and autonomous driving.
“Zenoh is the most innovative protocol available on the market,” said Angelo Corsaro, PhD, CEO of ZettaScale. “It was designed from the ground up to overcome the limitations of legacy protocols and to meet the demands of next-generation real-time and Internet-scale applications, such as robotics, autonomous vehicles and HPC at the global level. “scale of the Internet. Innovation that challenges the status quo and solves tough user problems is our mantra.”
Zeno combines and extends capabilities found in protocols such as DDS and MQTT (message queuing telemetry transport) with NDN (name data networking) to provide location-transparent abstractions for high-performance pub/sub and distributed queries across technologies geo-distributed and heterogeneous storage.
The most recent version of the Zenoh protocol, code name Bahamut, offers a number of improvements, including a simplified API for Rust, C, and Python; improved performance delivering over 51Gbps and 15us latency; support for a wide range of network transport; and much more.
In addition to Zenoh, the company will also demonstrate, in partnership with TT Tech Auto, the capabilities of its Cyclone DDS protocol when combined with TSN. Current industry testing and reporting demonstrates that Cyclone DDS is the highest performing, most secure, and most reliable implementation of the OMG DDS standard available on the market.
Most recently, ZettaScale partnered with TTTech Auto to provide MotionWise Cyclone DDS. The partnership combines TTTech Auto’s expertise in time-sensitive networking (TSN) and secure real-time software with ZettaScale’s open-source Cyclone DDS. The product will be safety certified to ISO 26262 and will be available for automotive and non-automotive applications, including those in ZettaScale’s existing robotic and mission-critical markets.
ZettaScale’s mission is to bring to every connected human and machine the unlimited freedom to communicate, compute and store – anywhere, at any scale, efficiently and securely. The company develops open-source communications middleware that underpins next-generation robotics, transportation, and mission-critical applications. As devices in the physical world become connected, instrumented, and interdependent, ZettaScale makes it easy for device makers to establish robust, secure, and scalable communication. https://zettascale.tech
ZettaScale spun off from ADLINK Technology Inc. in 2022, with strategic investment from TTTech Auto. ZettaScale has offices in the UK, France and The Netherlands.
