Introduction

Robotino smartsoft icon 64.png PoweredBySmartSoft-single small.png SmartSoft is a component approach for robotics software based on communication patterns as core of a robotics component model.
This page describes how one can use SmartSoft together with Robotino.

What does SmartSoft and SmartMDSD for you?

  • A structured approach (separation of roles) to manage software efforts and system complexity in building your real world robotic applications. (The SmartSoft Approach)
  • An integrated toolchain (model driven software development) that realizes this approach and supports your system development. (The SmartMDSD Toolchain)
  • A set of reusable software components for localisation, navigation, mobile manipulation, task coordination, human robot interaction, object recognition and many more for immediate reuse in your applications. (Components)

See SmartSoft, the SmartMDSD Toolchain and components in action: Video Tutorials.

SmartSoft -- Robotino API/Webinterface/Factory Integration

This section describes the integration or interaction of SmartSoft with the robotino services and tools (API/webinterface/factory). To enable the usage of SmartSoft "standard components" (e.g. navigation, localization and mapping) with the robotino services e.g the robotino factory, some robotino specific components have been developed (see section below).

The combination of those components enables an easy to use interface (e.g. robotino factory) to powerful functionally such as collision free navigation, SLAM, localization, management of locations and maps and tasks.

Core Robotino SmartSoft components

A robot system consist typically of a set of components that makes use of specific hardware (base, laser, etc.) delivering the "basic services" and platform (specific hardware) independent components (e.g. navigation, localization).
This section describes those SmartSoft components that are specifically developed for the use with the robotino platform.
The components are available opensource via subversion repo:

svn co svn://svn.rec.de/openrobotino/smartsoft/trunk/components

Other SmartSoft components can and are used in combination with those components as well, e.g. Sick-Laser components, all the navigation, localization and mapping components, etc. .

Name Description Component Hull
SmartRobotinoBaseServer The SmartRobotinoBaseServer provides access to the robotino robot. It handles the communication with the hardware or the simulator. It offers several services for controlling the robot, such as sending navigation commands to the base and providing access to the robot's odometry. Position updates can be sent to the component to overcome odometry failures.

SmartRobotinoLaserServer The SmartRobotinoLaserServer provides laser scans from the robotino SIM simulator or other scanners operated by robotino deamons. Scans can be requested by push newest or query communication.
