Acceleration Robotics is thrilled to announce the beta release of RobotPerf™ Benchmarks in collaboration with global academia and industry leaders including Harvard, Klagenfurt University, Georgia Institute of Technology, Boston University, Johannes Kepler University Linz, Ford, AMD, Barnard College, Columbia University, and Carnegie Mellon University. This pioneering benchmarking suite is designed specifically to assess robotics computing performance, using ROS 2 as its foundation. A scientific paper of this collaboration is available at https://accelerationrobotics.com/pdf/robotperf.pdf.
Navigating the vast combinations of robot hardware and software can be daunting. RobotPerf™ brings forth a performance benchmarking solution to assess robotic-system performance in an architecture-neutral, representative, and reproducible manner. Building on ROS 2, the established standard for robot application development, RobotPerf™ serves as a crucial tool for roboticists. It facilitates informed decisions on developing efficient robotic systems and understanding algorithmic trade-offs.
