ROS: Robot Operating System

Design robotics to be open!

ROS, the Robot Operating System, is an open source framework for writing software for robotics applications.

ROS offers enormous flexibility and particularly shows its strengths in dynamic environments such as navigating automated guided vehicles (AGV), gripping objects and collision prevention.

The completed ROS packages contain defined functionalities plus drivers and are made available to users via a shared community. This may be a path planning function, for example, which you easily adapt into a pick-and-place application. The individual ROS packages are modular and therefore highly versatile. They are also compatible with the hardware of various manufacturers.

ROS: Robot Operating System

ROS by Pilz

To guarantee the highest quality standard for our Pilz ROS modules, the software is developed and tested to proven Pilz standards and to the industrial quality requirements of the ROS Industrial Consortium.
So you always have high-quality ROS packages that simplify system integration: Well documented, with supporting tutorials!

Open and user-friendly

ROS is ideally suitable for users without expert knowledge in programming. In this modular approach, different ROS packages can be combined for an application. This offers extremely high flexibility when designing your robotics application. Openness is guaranteed with the cross-manufacturer open source framework.
