Coarobo GK Consulted by Panasonic on Robot Arm Simulation
Kyoto, Japan — Coarobo GK developed simulation tools to rapidly evaluate different motion planning strategies for a robot arm in collaboration with Panasonic Corporation.
The simulator was developed entirely using open-source technologies and software, including Docker, ROS, and MoveIt, for testing advanced motion planning approaches such as OMPL, CHOMP, or STOMP, in highly constrained environments. Felix von Drigalski, Vice President & Founder of Coarobo GK, who is also an official maintainer of MoveIt, led the project. His expertise in robotic manipulation and motion planning enabled Coarobo GK to collaborate with Panasonic to increase the operating speed of the robot arm.
