GR-ROSE

GR-ROSE is a small board for prototyping robot and IoT system. Enable to simplify distributed processing robot operation with the open-source software like ROS2, Arduino and AWS FreeRTOS. The physical interfaces to attach serial servos, to supply voltage and to connect sensors make easier incorporate into robot. In addition, AWS FreeRTOS enables to multi-task programming and to connect AWS IoT easily.

Factory USB firmware

At shipment, USB firmware is written in the microcomputer. When you press the reset button, it becomes storage, and copying the bin file executes as user application.

USB firmware

rose_usbfw_20190228.mot

After setting SW1 of GR-ROSE to "P" and connecting USB, you can write mot file with Renesas Flash Programmer (RFP).

The below is project files for e2studio. CCRX is required to compile. Refer to product site for download and installation about e2studio itself.
