Hello ROS community!
A new ROS driver for ABB robots was presented by ABB at the ROS-Industrial Conference 2020 last week, and just yesterday the driver was released on GitHub. The driver’s main purpose is to ease the use of ABB robots, together with ROS systems, which people then can build upon to develop many great applications.
Please note that the driver is released “as is” by ABB, and as such only limited support can be expected. It is not a product and the intended audience is academia.
If you are interested, please head over to the main abb_robot_driver repository and check it out.
The driver has been developed during the European project ROSIN – ROS-Industrial Quality-Assured Robot Software Components.
The ROSIN project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement no. 732287.
Additionally, many thanks to the ROS-Industrial community for valuable discussions and collaboration during the development!
Without these initiatives this driver would likely not have been developed.
