Demoversion

The Robotics booster for your application!

With the Kernel, you now have instandly more than 1000 robots for kinematic calculations, and a trajectory planner (motion interpolation) for PTP, SLEW, LIN, and CIRC motions. A powerful collision detection and numerous mathematical functions are also available.

The EASY-ROB™ Robotics Simulation Kernel is designed as a plug in for integration in technology-based software applications (host application) from OEM partners. Only API functions and services for the robot functionality are provided.

The host application handles 3D visualization as well as the administration of all geometries and handles of all kinematics. The EASY-ROB ™ Robotics Simulation Kernel returns a handle for each loaded kinematics.

Advantages

  • Integration in technology-based software solutions
  • Bidirectional control
  • 100% Robotics know-how
  • Robot Libraries
  • Motion planning and execution
  • ToolBox for special calculations (option)
  • Collision detection with clearance (option)
  • AutoPath ™ collision-free path planning (option)
  • 3D visualization by your host application
  • Available under Windows® (x64)

Robot Libraries

The Robotics Simulation Kernel accesses the EASY-ROB™ robot libraries.

With currently more than 1000 models you are always on the safe side, no matter which robot you want to simulate in the future.

Additional advantages

  • More than 1000 modells
  • Modeling of own robots, positioners, grippers, turntables and
    special special kinematics
  • Attributes e.g. Travel ranges, max. Speeds and accelerations
  • Formula parser with mathematical functions
  • Numerical solution method

Basic functionality

Trajectory planning and -execution

  • Motion types: PTP, LIN, CIRC, SLEW
  • Jerk free and phase synchronous velocity profile
  • Tool- and work piece guided movement (external TCP)
  • Synchronization with external axes
  • Track motion (LVA), conveyor tracking
  • Paint shops, tracking windows
  • ToolPath (trajectory) definition
  • Automatic reduction of speed, due to singularity
  • Cycle time estimation

Integration

  • Detailed Doxygen documentation
  • Method class ERK_CAPI
  • Programming examples: kinematics, interpolation, ToolPath, AutoPath™
  • Microsoft® Visual Studio C++ development environment

ERK Interpolation/Trajectory Planner

The ERK Trajectory Planner allows to set a target position with SET_NEXT_TARGET for each loaded kinematic, which is then accessed by cyclically calling GET_NEXT_STEP.

Furthermore, any ToolPathes that contain any targets with motion attributes such as motion type, speed, acceleration, job data, external axis values, etc. can be generated.
