Abstract
The Autonomous Land Systems (ALS) and Cohort projects undertaken by the Autonomous Intelligent System Section (AISS) at Defence R&D Canada – Suffield research and develop autonomous unmanned vehicles. A software architecture provides a common software framework allowing researchers to easily implement, test, and share their research or algorithms. After a thorough review of existing robotics toolkits, the “Miro” framework was chosen as a basis on which to build DRDC’s Architechture for Autonomy. This document gives the reader background on “Miro” and the detailed procedure used to install the toolkit and all associated applications. Second, the basic concepts of “Miro” are described including the Interface Definition Language, Naming Service, Polled Mode Data Transfer, Event Driven Data Transfer and the Miro Directory Structure. Third, various “Miro” utilities and several “Miro” examples are described. Finally, more detailed “Miro” examples including how to add services to the Automake structure, the OMG Interface Definition Language and Parameter Files are discussed.
