Real-time system for autonomous underwater vehicle

Situation & problem

Our client, a manufacturer of AUVs and ROVs for oil and gas rig operations, wanted to advance the capabilities of its real-time platform and integrate it with ROS 2 real time capabilities.

Intermodalics’s solution

Intermodalics developed new Orocos and ROS 2 framework capabilities amending the core code base of both frameworks and integrated both.


The client was able to use both frameworks in a transparent manner. The result was made publicly available as open source software and as part of the ROS Industrial consortium. Our results were merged upstream to benefit the whole robotics community.
