Robot Modeling, Simulation, and Control Made Easy
The simple idea behind our demo at CES 2023:
What could we show now to raise the bar, to really demonstrate the power of VITESSE?
Here's the plan:
Let's make robot control no-code, and super easy.
And we're not talking small collaborative robots here, we're talking serious industrial robots.
Would it be insane to achieve this with a welding robot?
In other wors to simply give access to robotic welding to a larger audience in the industry?
That's how things started!
Partnering with Stäubli and GYS, both premium manufacturers, we developed all the pieces of the puzzle with VITESSE.
3D modeling, Digital Twins, access to controllers, teaching, and execution were all in sync thanks to VITESSE.
We even used VITESSE as the Industrial IoT Gateway for this demo, with real-time telemetry and dashboards, all on edge for performance, safety, and security.
No-code modeling of the robot digital twin
No-code access to Stäubli and GYS controllers
No-code programming of robot path and welding parameters
No-code telemetry with real-time dashboards
New 7" HMI for control and execution
No-code orchestration and execution of the entire process
