Package Summary

FIROS is a tool that helps connecting robots to the cloud. For this purpose it uses the Robot Operating System (ROS, http://www.ros.org/) and the FIWARE Context Broker (http://catalogue.fiware.org/enablers/publishsubscribe-context-broker-orion-context-broker) as a way to publish and listen robot's data.

FIROS works as a translator between the robotics field and the cloud world, transforming ROS messages into NGSI to publish them in the cloud, and vice versa.
