Product description

The project OptiRob provides optimization algorithms for automatically improving manually created robot trajectories. Since most robot movements are planned by hand within several planning and simulation iterations, developing them optimal in, e.g., runtime, energy consumption or robot attrition, is rather time-consuming. The project OptiRob provides optimization libraries to tackle these tasks and supports system integrator and client in saving time and money by automatically optimizing given robot movement trajectories.

An alternative is given by optimization algorithms for the automatic calculation of optimal movement pattern. We will present a first implementation of the tool box OptiRob and exemplary, experimental results from these methods. They show a reduction of the cycle time by 25%, a reduction of the energy consumption about 35% and a decrease of the jerk, responsible for attrition of the joint motors, by 50% in contrast to unoptimized trajectories - thereby ensuring a constant observance of the freedom of movement as well as required safety constraints. All applied methods are fully vendor independent. We present a demonstrator with a Kuka LWR iiwa 7. Moreover, we present a possibility for ensuring and proving that the build program covers all given system requirements as well as all important safety aspects by using our tool VECS (Verification Environment for Critical Systems).

With this optimization possibilities, OptiRob supports the system integrator in developing optimal robot trajectories and programs as well as the customer who must adjust the robot for different tasks with its own employees.
