Frequently Asked Questions

Here are the most common questions you may want to ask to us.

What's the difference with ROS?

ROS has the same spirit than Luos but not at the same level. ROS allows you to easily run complex processes on a "normal" computer running Linux. Luos allows you to run simple real-time processes on tiny microcontrollers. Running ROS and Luos together on your robot is an easy to use and really efficient way of developing.

How does it work?

What's the technology inside Luos?

Luos is inspired by many different industrial-grade bus and distributed operating systems. We took the best ideas from many of them to create the ultimate communication way for robotics.

How long a license is available?

A license fits into one microcontroller and is valid for life, there is no expiration date.

How lightweight and fast is it?

Luos only needs a 24ko memory to run and can send messages at a 10Mbit/s speed.

“It looks like Luos Robotics have an impressive take on an incredibly challenging and relevant problem. Since I have been slowly learning to develop embedded electronics over the last few years, I am painfully aware of the limitations and frustrations that your company is trying to address.”

— John William Romanishin - MIT (CSAIL team)

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 827403.

"I asked Tandy Trower, a member of my strategic staff and a 26-year Microsoft veteran, to speak with people across the robotics community. What he found was universal enthusiasm for the potential of robotics and an industry-wide desire for tools that would make development easier."

— Bill Gates
