ROS-Industrial Consortium

Southwest Research Institute is initiating the ROS-Industrial Consortium to develop enabling robotic technologies in areas such as material handling, assembly and surface processing.

Pick and Place Demonstration

Southwest Research Institute recently used ROS-Industrial to demonstrate advanced pick and place applications using an industrial robot arm. SwRI recently established ROS-Industrial Software Repository, a BSD-licensed ROS stack that will contain libraries, tools and drivers for industrial automation hardware. ROS-Industrial resources can be found at

ROS-Industrial Integrated w Another Robot

ROS-Industrial control demonstrated on Adept robot. Same ROS software used to control Motoman robot.

Repository Announcement

This video is the first implementation of an industrial robot under ROS-Industrial control. The SIA10D robot from Yaskawa Motoman is receiving position commands and providing position feedback over Ethernet from a PC running ROS. The ROS planning environment (visualized in Rviz) captures the physical geometry of the robot cell by combing several data sources including CAD models, simplified representations, and sensor data (not shown). ROS path planning software generates collision free robot paths within the planning environment. The results of the path planning are shown in the visualization and are executed directly on robot hardware. The complex, collision free, path-planning capability is in part enabled by redundancy and configuration of the SIA robot. This is just the first of new capabilities enabled by ROS-Industrial. By leveraging even more complex ROS abilities, like dynamic pick and place functions, many new and previously impossible applications will be realized.

Program Introduction

SwRI is adapting ROS open source code for industrial robots to launch ROS Industrial, a new body of open source applications.
