Open Source Robotics: In addition, the industrial robot companies are huge and have been developing ... #OpenSource

The same development software that's enabling the Raven II open-source surgical robotic research platform has been tweaked to bring open-source development to industrial robots. The ROS-Industrial project is now extending the Robot Operating System (ROS) platform to develop robust, reliable software that meets the needs of manufacturing and industrial applications. Willow Garage's ROS open-source project provides a common framework of libraries and tools for several different kinds of robots, including configurations for service and research 'bots. As the Raven II combines ROS-based software with university-developed hardware to help accelerate development of surgical robots, ROS-Industrial will combine open-source robotics code with proven industrial robotics. Willow Garage is collaborating on the project with the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) and intelligent robot ...
