CANopen and Robot Technology Component

(PresseBox) ( Nürnberg, )
CiA (CAN in Automation) members have developed the CiA 460 CANopen service robot controller profile and the CiA 318 specification describing the integration of CANopen networks into a Robot Technology Component (RTC) environment. RTC, a general framework for distributed robot control system, specified by the nonprofit OMG group, has been chosen by several Japanese service robot research projects. In order to make use of low-price CANopen products such as sensors and servo controllers, the above-mentioned specifications have been developed. The CANopen service robot controller implements all complementary profiles of the CANopen connected devices. This approach allows an easy integration into a more complex RTC system comprising different sub-systems. In many service robot applications, there are several only loosely coupled sub-systems installed. In a typical example, there are the movement controller and the handling controller for dedicated services.
