DEVELOPMENTAL: This status indicates that this software is not yet production ready code. The software has some level of unit-testing. There are known issues and missing functionality. The APIs are unstable but unlikely to change drastically. Use in production systems will likely require modifications including improvements and/or bug fixes. For more information see the ROS-Industrial software status page.


This repository is part of the ROS-Industrial program. It currently contains packages that provide nodes for communication with Fanuc industrial robot controllers and urdf models for various Fanuc manipulators.

See the fanuc_experimental metapackage for additional packages, such as MoveIt configuration packages and MoveIt IKFast plugins.


For more information on what is required to be able to use these packages with your Fanuc controller and manipulator, see the fanuc_driver page.


The packages in the main repository have been released into ROS Indigo on Ubuntu, making installation through apt-get or synaptic possible. Other Linux distributions will have to build from source.

To install all released Indigo packages, run the following on the command line:

sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-fanuc

This installs all the dependencies as well. Be sure to complete the relevant ROS installation tutorial first. Refer to the Tutorials section on this page for more ROS-Industrial specific information.

NB: The github repository (see the Source link in the Package Summary section) is unstable, however it does contain the latest code and adds support for additional robot models. See also the fanuc_experimental metapackage.


See the Tutorials page for an overview of the available tutorials for the Fanuc repository. Industrial/Tutorials provides an overview of all available ROS-Industrial tutorials, as well as more information on the ROS-Industrial training exercises.

Additional Tools

Some additional useful tools can be found in the fanuc_ros_tools and fanuc_ros_cgio_py repositories.
