ADVANCED Motion Controls, of Camarillo, CA USA, jointly announces development efforts with Robosoft located in Bidart, France, to produce a new standard in service robots. To date, Robosoft has uniquely created a multi-use hardware platform for remote service mobile robotic needs. The robuLAB series, for example, can be used for indoor security, medical assistance, assisted living or any other service need.
Robosoft RobuLAB-10(with arm)
The hardware incorporates ADVANCED Motion Controls servo drives at the heart of the motion control. Robosoft’s robuBOX‚â„¢ is a flexible software platform that is operationally ready to take on many tasks and can be quickly and safely tailored to fit the customer’s exact needs. With the combination of the Robosoft’s hardware and software, including ADVANCED Motion Controls DigiFlex‚Â® Performance‚â„¢ high power density servo drives, OEM’s and users can develop new robotic applications much faster than attempting full scale development.
Additionally, for those customers looking to develop their own control algorithms within Microsoft’s Robotics Development Studio, drivers for ADVANCED Motion Controls’ DigiFlex‚Â® Performance‚â„¢ servo drives, and additional software features, are being developed by Robosoft in the robuBOX‚â„¢ and will be available to developers before the end of 2008.
A demonstration of Robosoft’s robot, robuLAB-10, will be available at ADVANCED Motion Controls booth # 1927 at the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) exhibition and conference in San Diego, CA, June 10 -12, 2008.
