Take control of medical robotics with KUKA: the KUKA Sunrise.OS Med operating system for the LBR Med is specially designed for easy programming of medical applications. This opens up numerous possibilities.
Program medical applications quickly and successfully on the basis of KUKA Sunrise.OS Med
KUKA Sunrise.OS Med is the operating system for the LBR Med and, together with the included KUKA Sunrise.Workbench Med and KUKA Sunrise.WoV Med, offers all the functions required for the programming and configuration of demanding medical robot applications. Object-oriented programming with Java additionally enables fast application development. And all this is tailored to the needs of medical device manufacturers and certified.
Specially tailored to medical robotics thanks to certifications
Based on Java 8 and Windows 10, KUKA Sunrise.OS Med 2.6 offers easy access to high-end robotics. At the same time, the system software meets the requirements of IEC 62304:2006 (first edition) + A1:2015. The KUKA Sunrise.HRC Med safety option that is included enables the functions required for the implementation of collaborative human-robot applications in accordance with Performance Level d Category 3 EN ISO 13849-1:2015.
Safe collaboration between robots and medical personnel
Special safety options enable monitoring of the velocity, the forces acting on the robot arm and the positions of the robot arm in the workspace as well as the measured torques themselves. Precise safety parameters can also be stored by the medical device manufacturer in order to automatically stop the robot in emergency situations, activate the brakes or trigger a custom-defined reaction. In the case of operations involving human-robot collaboration, the safety of medical personnel and patients can thus be assured.

Wide range of optional packages for every application
Diverse range of interfaces for connecting the robot controller to user-specific algorithms on customer systems
Object-oriented Java programming interface for all robot functions
Innovative functions for programming, planning and configuring applications for the LBR Med
KUKA Sunrise.FRI Med
Setting the pace: KUKA Sunrise.FRI Med is the “Fast Robot Interface” that enables communication with the robot controller from an external computer in real time. At the same time, each axis position of the robot can be determined in milliseconds.
Controlled access to joint positions, joint torque and Cartesian positions on the x, y and z axes (1 to 100 milliseconds)
Commanding of axis positions, axis-specific torques as well as Cartesian poses
C++ Software Development Kit for external computers
Application scenarios: camera-based and collision-free path planning, machine learning
KUKA Sunrise.Servoing Med
Complete information at a glance: The KUKA Sunrise.Servoing Med 2.0 option package is an interface for programming the SmartServo and SmartServoLin motion types. These motion types allow the end position to be changed with a smooth transition during a programmed motion of the robot. This means, for example, that it is possible to react to an emergency situation with an immediate evasive motion.
Non-deterministic, soft real-time applications can be implemented in order to correct a robot path quickly
Servo motions can be used to command new end positions during the robot motion
SmartServo sets joint-specific and Cartesian end positions that are addressed along the quickest path
SmartServoLin sets Cartesian end positions: these end positions are addressed with a linear motion
SmartServo and SmartServoLin enable jerk-limited paths with fast destination setting
KUKA Sunrise.PreciseHandGuiding Med
A hands-on approach: the KUKA Sunrise.PreciseHandGuiding Med option package enables new and precise manual guidance with the possibility of presetting specific restrictions at the same time. This allows, for example, specific motions of the integrated robot to be inhibited – such as those during a knee operation in which a saw only works in a defined plane.
Rotation about a defined tool center point
Motion within a plane (defined as one of the planes in a coordinate system)
Motion along an axis (defined as one of the axes of the tool coordinate system)
Motion with a fixed tool orientation
Customers can set individual robot parameters for manual guidance (motion resistance and breakaway torque)
Intuitive behavior of the elbow during manual guidance
Limitation of the velocity of the axes
Limitation of the Cartesian velocity of the robot
Option of setting axis limits
KUKA Sunrise.IncreasedStiffness Med
Unwavering: KUKA Sunrise.IncreasedStiffness Med is a control mode that optimizes the stiffness of the robot arm for reduced payloads and workspaces. The stiffness of the robot (control parameters) is automatically adapted according to the load data of the device defined by the customer:
Compatible with basic robot motion commands (such as PTP, LIN, CIRC, CP Spline, JP Spline, PositionHold)
Compatible with Servoing, FRI, basic robot motion types
Does not affect the safety configuration or the monitoring of forces and torques
Activation and deactivation of the control mode possible within the customer application
KUKA Sunrise.BrakeHandling Med
Full braking: KUKA Sunrise.BrakeHandling Med enables the use of robot brakes in the application. If required, they can be closed within an application (while the LBR Med is stationary and no motion command is active) or automatically closed at the end of every motion.
