USBoard available from Level Five Supplies

Customers in the United Kingdom can now order the USBoard from Level Five Supplies, our official distributor.

The USBoard reads the distance measurements from up to 16 ultrasonic sensors Bosch USS4 and publishes them via CAN bus. Beside applications in mobile robotics the USBoard is especially interesting for anyone working on autonomous cars. All around the world customers are already using ultrasonic sensors and the USBoard in their autonomous cars.


Pilz uses Neobotix robot for show case

Together with Neobotix the Pilz GmbH & Co. KG has developed a show case combining the new Pilz service robotics modules and a mobile robot MP-400 from Neobotix.

This application demonstrates the use of AGVs with manipulator arm in intralogistics.
"In Neobotix we have found a reliable partner for building our mobile application", says Arndt Christ, Vice President Customer Support at Pilz.

The automation experts at Pilz have recently unveiled their new product range of customisable service robotics modules. The Pilz service robotics modules are at the heart of this new field. With a payload of 6 kg, 24 VDC supply and ROS support the six-axis robot arm from Pilz is perfectly suited for mobile applications.


New Papers from LAAS
New papers from LAAS

Researchers from the French LAAS, working on a Neobotix MP-L655, have published two interesting new papers.

The MP-L655 is the near indestructable predecessor of the mobile robot MP-700. At the LAAS research institute it is currently used for work on human robot collaboration as well as binaural active localisation.





Test Neobotix robots online in the ROS Development Studio

Several Neobotix robots can now be tested online in the ROS Development Studio. These include the omnidirectional robot MPO-700 and the Mecanum robot MPO-500, both very popular for robotics research.

The ROS Development Studio allows anybody interested in mobile robotics and ROS to run first tests with our robots, fast, easy and free of charge. We will also add other models to the online simulation one after the other.



RT Lions win the Sick robot day 2018

The RT Lions and their omnidirectional robot MMO-700 have won first plate at the Sick robot day 2018.

Their MMO-700 used a Sawyer robot arm from Rethink Robotics to pick balls from a moving transport robot and deliver them to a stationary box. Thirteen teams from three countries came to compete in the robot day.

Congratulations to the RT Lions!
