Yaskawa porting ROS to robot line

September 10, 2011

Southwest Research Institute porting Willow Garage’s Open Source ROS Robotic Operating System to Yaskawa line of Motoman robots.
Work to be done by Q1 2012.
“The next step for industrial robotics is to be more sensor aware; to be able to accomodate the many new capabilities showing up in the service sector. It’s clear that ROS is able to handle all of these,” says Erik Nieves, Technology Director for Yaskawa America’s Motoman Robotics Division.
