“Motor-drives are the key components in service robotics, this is the gateway between hardware and software” says Vincent Dupourqué, CEO of ROBOSOFT. “The ADVANCED Motion Controls drives perfectly fit our control software needs, allowing implementation of advanced algorithms for mobile robots and manipulators.”
Additionally, for those customers looking to develop their own control algorithms within Microsoft’s Robotics Development Studio, drivers for ADVANCED Motion Controls’ DigiFlex® Performance™ servo drives, and additional software features, are being developed by Robosoft in the robuBOX™ and will be available to developers before the end of 2008.
“Flexible mobile robotic platforms with available standards have now come of age. Robosoft’s robuters® and robuBOX™ hardware and software products are proving to be excellent building blocks for companies looking to create their own specific robot designs” says Karl Meier, Marketing Manager of ADVANCED Motion Controls.
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.
