Ozeki 10 - The Robot Operating System

Ozeki is an easy to use, efficient platform for robotics applications. If you use Windows on your PC, Android on your Mobile, you should use Ozeki on your Robot. Ozeki enables you to build robots efficiently. It also allows you to control a large number of robots remotely and to organize communication between robots, backend applications and humans.

Business mechanics require you to get to market quickly, and to turn your project into revenue in a short period of time. This is only possible if you can focus on the actual application. Ozeki offers a platform and a set of professional tools, that will make you much more productive and efficient.

Robot developers

When you build a robot, there are four layers to take care of: The base layer is a the microcontroller layer. This layer operates the sensors and motors in real time. Since microcontrollers are cheap (often bellow 1 USD), it is a good practice to use many microcontrollers, to keep the code running in them small and simple. The second layer is the embedded PC layer. The microcontrollers are connected to the embedded pc using serial links or USB. The embedded PC operates Linux and a general purpose CPU, such as an ARM based model. The third layer is the Ozeki Robot OS. The Ozeki Robot OS gives you an abstract layer to controll all your hardware using messages. If a sensor reads a reading it sends a message, if you wish to control a motor, you will send a message to the motor. This Robot OS allows you to focus on you app, which is the top layer.

Hardware control with messaging

One of the greatest advantage of using Ozeki 10 for building your robots is getting the ability to focus on your app. You can speed up robot develpoment signifacantly, because you can concentrate on the actual business application. In Ozeki 10 every sensor, motor, actuator is treated as a messaging endpoint. These endpoints are called "Connections". When you write a robot control app, all you have to do is process text messages comming form sensors, and send text messages to other sensors to take appropriate action. When you use Ozeki, you don't have to worry about understanding the low level electrical properties of each sensor, and you will not end up debugging registers, low level microcontroller code and performing many other time inefficient tasks. To build a successful robotics business you must focus on your app and your app must be indepdenent of the low level physical characteristics of the parts.

control sensors with messages

Robot collaboration with messaging

Advanced tasks often require robot collaboration. The messaging system of Ozeki 10 allows you to setup a system where robots can send messages directly between each other. These inter-robot messages can use a Wifi Lan, the Internet or a local radio communication link.

Centeral control with messaging

Your robots might be behind firewalls on remote networks. If you want to control them, you can rely on the messaging system provided by Ozeki Robot OS. The Ozeki Robot OS can deliver messages to and from your robots over the Internet. Messages can be used to instruct the robots to do firmware updates, to collect usage patterns from the robots to be able to improve functionality. They can be used for error reports, and supply requests.

User control with messaging

Your customers will require you to offer them a smartphone app they can use to control their robots. Ozeki 10 makes it possible for Android smartphones to send and receive messages to robots. You can use the chat interface offered by Ozeki, or you can write your own smartphone app, and simply use the messaging system of Ozeki.

robot user control

Browser based GUI

Desktop users, operators and developers will be happy to login to your robot using a webbrowser. Ozeki 10 robot OS allows you to login using by simply opening an URL. In the Graphical User Interface (GUI), you can check the status, and test each individual sensor. You can also see message logs and live system resource graphs. You can also develop a browser based GUI application for your robot.

Develop using C#.Net

If you wish to develop robot control apps in Ozeki Robot OS, your best option is to use C#.Net. You can use the built in Ozeki Robot Studio development environment through the webbrowser GUI, or for more advanced projects you can setup Microsoft Visual Studio on Windows. Since the entire robot control is done using messaging it is very easy to build robot based solutions efficiently. If you wish to use Ozeki Robot OS in eduction, you have the option to use SNAP. SNAP is a visual drag and drop programming language similar to Scratch. In SNAP you have all the sensors registered as blocks, and you can create simple robot control algorithms in minutes. For education purposes SNAP is also integrated with the Lego EV3 robotics platform.

programing languages

Add your custom sensors

Allthough Ozeki 10 already supports hundreds of sensors, motors and actuators, you might want to add your own custom built sensor or a sensor not yet supported. In this case you have two options. You can develop the neccessary code for your part, or you can ask Ozeki to do it for you. In both cases the time it takes is very short and it worths the effort.

If you are a robot part supplier, you can list your sensors, motors, actuators and other robot parts for robot builders in the Ozeki store. If you offer a part that is already supported, or is compatible with a supported part, your job is very easy. All you have to do is list your product. If you device is not yet supported, develop a driver for it. It will pay off, because you will get access to many robot developers, who will likely be your returning customers.

Note: There are many other sensors supported by Ozeki. If your sensor is not in the list, there is a good chance that it is still suppoted, connect it to your system, and see if it is detected automatically. It is also important to mention, that Ozeki offers great, open source examples, that make it very easy to add new sensor types. Feel free to contact us at info@ozeki.hu if you have questions regarding a particular sensor.
