We are officially launching three more Robot Toolboxes for Robotics Engineers, System Integrators and Researchers to deploy their robots for various applications:
- Robot Deployment Toolbox (Accelerate Robot Deployment)
- Robot Assisted Driving Toolbox (ADAS for Robot)
- Robot Maintenance Toolbox (Make Robot Maintenance Easy)
So, what does the "Robot Deployment Toolbox" do for you? Let's get to the points. The toolbox comes with three main tools, the Real-Time Integrated Physical Simulator™, a universal middleware SDK, and a low-level real-time control and connectivity board.
With the Robot Deployment Toolbox, you can design and simulate safety-critical robotics algorithms such as collision avoidance using the Real-Time Integrated Physical Simulator and perform software in the loop and processor in the loop validation. You can further deploy the above safety-critical robotics algorithms directly into the provided low-level control and connectivity board running real-time operating system. This allows you to ensure the safety of the robot even when the upper-level navigation computer fails.
You can interface between a wide range of robots and navigation stacks with our universal middleware SDK. The SDK comes with unified control interfaces for different mobile robot bases. For navigation integration, the SDK supports popular robotics middleware such as DDS, ROS 1, ROS 2, LCM and MATLAB®. The Toolbox works seamlessly with the Robot Assisted Driving Toolbox for easy remote steering, and the Robot Maintenance Toolbox for robot monitoring and diagnosis.
Why can't we implement the ADAS capability (used by cars) for mobile robots, especially for outdoor robots whose working environment may be more chaotic than our daily driving roads (except at lower speed)? For example, for those inspection robots at power stations, patrolling robots in parks, and fire extinction robots, fully autonomous is not realistic at the moment, and remote manual control is highly demanded. How to drive a robot (deployed many kilometers away from you) similarly as you drive your car in the first person with all the ADAS capability?
To address these challenges, we built and shipped the "Robot Assisted Driving Toolbox - ADAS for Robot", now you can conformably sitting in your control room (or home office), and confidently control your robots doing the jobs. Check it out in the video below:
Last but not least for R2021a release - Robot Maintenance Toolbox™, Robot Maintenance Toolbox provides robot engineers with both a Terminal-based user interface and a graphical user interface to quickly monitor, diagnose and restore the robot operation.
Through network connection to a robot deployed at a remote site, Robot Maintenance Toolbox provides you a graphical interface to display the critical information of the robot, such as the motor rpm, current and temperature. Together with the Robot Assisted Driving Toolbox, you can manually interact the robot from your office, display sensor data, and analyze the robot behavior to quickly identify the root cause of many issues.
If a remote network connection is not possible, the full capabilities of the graphical user interface is still available to you with minimal hardware requirements. Through the use of just a computer running linux, and a serial or CAN connection, the terminal-based tool provides the same functions as the graphical user interface.
The toolbox works together with the Robot Deployment Toolbox and the Robot Assisted Driving Toolbox. For more information #, please visit the product page: https://www.westonrobot.com/robot-maintenance-toolbox
- 06-053D lidar is one of the key enabling technologies that helps robots see and understand our world. Ouster's 3D lidars have been widely adopted in autonomous driving and robotics research and deployment. Weston Robot now officially partners with Ouster to promote the lidar-based navigation for outdoor robotics applications.
Remote-Controlled USV for Garbage Collection at Singapore PortUnmanned Surface Vessel (USV) equipped with M1 5G perform garbage collection and water surveillance at Marina Keppel Bay (MKB) Singapore to test M1 5G coverage on the water area. A piece of good equipment that reduces water pollution (no gasoline required), remote cleaning, creating more high-tech jobs and cleaner water area for all to enjoy.
Table Cleaning Robot Tried at Hawker CentersThe system equips with one lidar-based autonomous navigation AMR base, a 6-DOF collaborative robot arm with a customized-designed holders for two cloth, AI/vision system. The entire motion planning and computer vision runs on NVIDIA Jetson XAVIER. The robot autonomously travels to each corner of the table, detects whether there are some valuable items on the table before making the cleaning procedures.
