OSEK RTOS

OSEK RTOS provides a standard software architecture for a variety of electronic control devices in automobiles.
Developed as a standard interface, application development is easy, software is portable and scalable. This saves development costs and time. In addition, there is a standard that considers the processing of system malfunctions, so that software stability can be achieved.

ROS

Robot Operating System (ROS) is robotics middleware (i.e. collection of software frameworks for robot software development). It provides services designed for heterogeneous computer cluster such as hardware abstraction, low-level device control, implementation of commonly used functionality, message-passing between processes, and package management.

SLAM

Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) is a concept used in robotics and so on. It is a technology that the mobile robot moves around in arbitrary space, searches for the surrounding area, and maps the space and estimates the current position.
