EEROS is the Easy, Elegant, Reliable, Open and Safe Real-Time Robotics Software Framework. It offers a unique architecture, making it universally viable for robots in education and industry. EEROS can closely interact with ROS (Robot Operating System). The latter offers a wide variety of services. In contrast, EEROS allows to implement a precise and realtime capable framework controlling a robot. It provides a lightweight layer of software abstraction, allowing code to be reused on multiple platforms and reducing development costs.
EEROS is open-source and has been used with great success in a variety of projects.
The EEROS Education Robotics platform features inexpensive educational robots developed by the EEROS team. These robots are designed for teaching key robotics concepts with a highly flexible, easy-to-use software platform.
EEROS is fully open source, licensed under the Apache License Version 2.0. Currently, EEROS must be built from source, which is freely available on GitHub. Only Debian- and Gentoo-based Linux distributions are supported.
EEROS is designed to be robust and flexible enough to be applicable in all fields of robotics. To keep up with the rapid expansion of the robotics industry, EEROS emphasizes fast software development without sacrificing safety and reliability.
