Two easy steps to a powerful robot arm interface

Two easy steps to a powerful robot arm interface

A robot Hand without a robot Arm is most of the time useless. At Shadow we have a long history of interfacing different robot arms with our software and hardware. In the different projects we’ve run over the years, we’ve written software for arms from Universal Robot, Denso, Kuka, Staubli… We’ve also developed a few intriguing arms internally, from an arm actuated by air muscles to a lightweight arm that picks-up strawberries.

On this journey, we’ve learned a few things. Let me share a few tips on what it takes to write a good interface for a robot arm quickly.

There are plenty of amazing solutions out there, but we were recently faced with a project where those state of the art solutions just weren’t good enough for us. We needed a super fast planner that generated trajectories that “looked good”.
