Kawasaki robot drivers (and other packages)

This may be interesting for members here: Kawasaki Robotics just released ROS support for (some of) their robots and controllers.

You may find the packages here: Kawasaki-Robotics/khi_robot. A page on the ROS wiki has also been created, but is still under construction: wiki/khi_robot.

From the readme, the following robots appear to be supported:

  • duaro (currently simulation only)
  • rs007l
  • rs007n
  • rs80n

Thanks for announcing our ROS support khi_robot.
Yes, we are now supporting only duaro, rs007l/n, and rs80n.
We will also write ROS wiki contents later.

Apologies if I interfered with your schedule @d-nakamichi, that was not my intention.

Let’s say it was my enthusiasm that caused me to post this.

That’s great news! Are there plans for Kawasaki to provide ROS support for the YF003N delta robot? :slight_smile: Thanks!

Great job! That would be a great boost for our research!
Is there a timeline schedule for the support of the RS005N?

Greetings from Greece!


Currently there is no plan to add new robot for ROS.

@d-nakamichi: what would it take to get new robots supported?

Sufficient community interest in certain models?

@gavanderhoorn: Yes, we will do when the ROS community gets very interested in our robots and we judge that it is benefit for our business and customers.
