OIS Robotics Platform

Industrial RoboticsThe OIS Robotics Platform features a trio of Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA) products: ORBexpress® RT, ORBexpress DSP and ORBexpress FPGA, OIS’s high-performance communications middleware products. The OIS Robotics Platform supports a wide variety of hardware architectures commonly used in robotics: general purpose processors (GPPs), digital signal processors (DSPs) and field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). This multiple-device support lets robotics designers develop logic once on a common platform and then deploy to specific device hardware as desired.

The OIS Robotics Platform also integrates with the world’s first high-assurance communications security software, PCSexpress. Once implemented in a robot, PCSexpress ensures the authorization of any entity communicating with the robot and the integrity of the data—with military-grade security.

The OIS Robotics Platform Features:

• A family of standards-based CORBA Object Request Brokers (ORBs) which provides a flexible, upgradeable and high-performance communications infrastructure for robotics systems;

• A complete middleware solution in a very small footprint—which is especially important for power-constrained robots;

• Support for partial reconfigurability on the FPGA, which simplifies programming while significantly increasing application code reuse; this is critical in sophisticated systems such as automotive assembly plants, which often require field upgradeability of robotics systems;

• Support for high-security communications through PCSexpress, the only commercially available communications product designed for the highest levels of defense security, including High Robustness;

• Support for multiple pluggable transports with Quality of Service (QoS), such as TCP/IP, UDP, Shared Memory, Ethernet, PCI, PCI Express and RDMA technologies (e.g, RapidIO™ and INFINIBAND).
