ROSCon 2017: Model-based Design for Safety Critical Controller Design with ROS and Gazebo — Michael Naderhirn, Mischa Köpf, and Josef Mendler (Kontrol GmbH)

Looking foward to ROSCon 2018 we’re highlighting presentations from last year.

Michael presents on how to bring ROS into safety critical systems.



This presentation gives an overview about our “Kontrol” development environment for safety critical controllers using ROS and Gazebo. We first analyze existing standards for safety critical controllers for different applications and present the results of an extensive industry survey which concludes that 70-80% of the development costs are spent during the serial development phase. To overcome this burden, we present our approach of a model-based development environment which significantly reduces this cost. We show how ROS and Gazebo can be integrated into one development tool. Finally, we demonstrate the automatic code generation for ROS and ROS2 nodes using Scilab.
