KMR iiwa: autonomous and extremely flexible
KMR stands for KUKA Mobile Robotics. The KMR iiwa is a combination of the sensitive LBR iiwa lightweight robot and a mobile, flexible platform. As the name and the individual components already suggest, the KMR iiwa stands out with its high degree of mobility and flexibility.
Manufacturing processes are changing constantly. This is why mobile robot systems must be very adaptable. Maximum mobility and autonomous working methods optimize your production significantly.
Solution for autonomous platforms: KUKA.Navigation Solution
KUKA.NavigationSolution is our navigation solution for autonomously navigating vehicles. Whether navigation, control, management or monitoring: our navigation solution covers all mobility requirements.
Using the SLAM method – which is an acronym for Simultaneous Localization And Mapping – the platform is able to pinpoint its location in real time on a map of its environment created from the data of the safety laser scanners and wheel sensors.
The KUKA Sunrise.OS system software is used for the KUKA KMR iiwa. This software is tailor-made to operate lightweight robots and offers functions for programming, planning and configuring lightweight robot applications.
