Kria KR260 - a scalable robotics platform powered with Ubuntu

Today, robotics developers have something to look forward to with the release of AMD Kria™ KR260 Robotics Starter Kit. Robotics is a challenging endeavour. By reducing the barriers to entry on embedding design, AMD aims to accelerate robotics innovations in every industry. The latest addition to the Kria portfolio of adaptive system-on-modules (SOMs) showcases this work.

The State of Robotics - January 2022

What a way of starting the year! Setting milestones, helping those in need, and daring to dream. January 2022 starts with one of the biggest technological conferences — CES. So, in this piece, you will find a breakdown of three robots in our usual style. But there’s more… we also bring a story to inspire you all. It’s a great experience writing this blog, where every month news are abundant. Thank you all for contacting us and sharing your stories.

Robotics and Ubuntu rewind 2021

A year packed with news and events. A year where great competitions came to an end. A year that made us dream with new robots. 2021 inspired us to reach new heights and pursue new breakthroughs. As we power millions of robotics developers with Ubuntu and our robotics open source tools, we present a recap of what marked this year. Discover the victories and defeats of 2021. Those product launches that made the front page. Our best tutorials and whitepapers.

Security vulnerabilities on the Data Distribution Service (DDS)

If you are currently running the Robot Operating System 2 (ROS 2), this piece is especially relevant to the security of your robots. A few weeks ago, a group of security researchers reported 13 security vulnerabilities affecting some of the most used implementations of DDS, the default middleware used by ROS 2.

The State of Robotics - November 2021

Learning how to fly. Again. Because certain technologies and processes can always be optimized. Take laptops, for instance (I always wanted to become a laptop designer!). From foldable screens to computers that incorporate e-readers, we are always pushing for new designs that address ergonomic requirements but also improve the way we work. We are doing the same with drones. This month features innovations that dare to challenge the status quo of how we fly.

Ubuntu and ROS: a decade of driving robotics innovation

ROS has been powering the future of robotics in academia, industry and enterprise for more than 10 years, from robotics arms, to automotive, drones, and more. But do you know that ROS started with Ubuntu? In this video, we explain how Canonical's tools optimized for ROS and robotics devices can empower your next project.
