Acceleration Robotics Launch ROBOTCORE™ to Speed-up ROS 2 Robots
Acceleration Robotics S.L., a robotics semiconductor startup based in the Basque Country and focused on designing customized brains for robots to hasten their response time via FPGAs and GPUs released ROBOTCORE™, a hardware acceleration framework for the Robot Operating System (ROS), the standard in robotics. Delivering semiconductor building blocks for robots, the company creates custom compute architectures for high performance robots through hardware acceleration while remaining robot and accelerator-agnostic (supporting popular FPGAs and GPUs).

ROBOTCORE™ allows robotic engineers to create ROS and ROS 2 API-compatible Intellectual Property (IP) cores that increase the robot's performance, including latency and throughput. These “robot cores” make robots faster, more deterministic and power-efficient. ROBOTCORE™ launches with support for more than 10 development boards, including the most popular hardware acceleration solutions to build robots with ROS.
The framework builds on top of proven open-source software in robotics, such as ROS 2, so that roboticists don't spend time redeveloping what already works and focus instead on delivering higher performance robotic applications. While providing a vendor-agnostic ROS-centric development flow, ROBOTCORE™ solves customer design challenges in robotic areas including sensing, perception, mapping, localization, motion control, low-level control or actuation, with speedups surpassing 500x modern processors.
“Robots are networks of networks, with sensors passing data to compute technologies and actuators. These networks can be understood as the nervous system of the robot. Like with the human nervous system, low latency and real-time information is fundamental for the robot to behave coherently. Faster robots (or with more dexterity) require faster computations. Hardware acceleration with ROBOTCORE™ empowers exactly this. With ROS being the common language roboticists use to build “robot brains”, ROBOTCORE™ extends ROS and deals with GPU and FPGA vendor-proprietary libraries, empowering hardware acceleration across silicon vendors”. – Víctor Mayoral-Vilches, Acceleration Robotics, Founder.

Landmark Study Reveals New Technology from DeBogy Molecular Significantly Reduces the Bacteria and Deadly Infection that Can Occur Following a Surgical Implant27.6.2022 15:15:00 CEST | Press release
DeBogy Molecular, Inc, a biotech startup that specializes in antimicrobial surface modification, today announced the findings of a landmark in vivo research study that affirms the effectiveness and safety of their new technology to kill the dangerous bacteria that proliferates on the surface of a medical implant following surgery. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20220626005067/en/ Wayne Gattinella CEO, DeBogy Molecular, Inc (Photo: Business Wire) Infection resulting from bacterial biofilm that forms on the surface of a medical implant represents one of the most serious complications that can follow orthopedic surgery or the implantation of a medical device. Implant related infections account for over half of the 2 million yearly healthcare-associated infections in the U.S., at a cost of over $27 billion dollars annually. A preclinical research study was conducted by Vivexia, an independent Clinical Research Orga
