We’ll ensure you make the perfect start to robotics. Robotics at Pilz consists of ROS modules for the industrial environment, service robotics and the collision measurement set PRMS for human-robot collaboration
ROS, the Robot Operating System, is an open source framework for writing software for robotics applications.
ROS offers enormous flexibility and shows its strengths particularly in dynamic environments, for example when navigating automated guided vehicles (AGV), gripping objects or avoiding collisions.
The completed ROS packages contain defined functionalities as well as drivers and are made available to users via a shared community. This may be a path planning function, for example, which you easily adapt into a pick-and-place application. The individual ROS packages are modular and therefore highly versatile. They are also compatible with the hardware of various manufacturers. http://www.pilz.com
To guarantee the highest quality standard for our Pilz ROS modules, the software is developed and tested to proven Pilz standards and to the industrial quality requirements of the ROS Industrial Consortium. So you always have high-quality ROS packages that simplify system integration: well documented and with supporting tutorials!
ROS is ideally suitable for users without expert knowledge of programming. In this modular approach, different ROS packages can be combined for an application. This offers extremely high flexibility when designing your robotics application. Openness is guaranteed with the cross-manufacturer open source framework. http://www.pilz.com
