Kuka LBR user group

This page collects all useful information for the User Group for the KUKA Light-Weight-Robot.

The following institutes are currently involved:

  • Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KULeuven), division PMA

[We can add your details here!]

At K.U.Leuven we released Orocos Components for communicating with the LBR using RSI and FRI interfaces. The RSI component should be usable for all KUKA Robots that offer RSI.

The FRI interface software can be found at: https://github.com/wdecre/kuka-robot-hardware (replaces http://git.mech.kuleuven.be/robotics/kuka_robot_hardware.git)

The RSI interface software can be found at: http://svn.mech.kuleuven.be/repos/orocos/orocos-apps/public_release/Kuka_RSI At KU Leuven RSI is currently not actively used.

The FRI and RSI interface, provide you with an Orocos component that you can add to your robot application to handle the communication with the robot controller.

A readme file with the main installation steps is provided with the code (git or svn checkout). All comments, discussions, questions and suggestions are very welcome at the mailing list: see http://lists.mech.kuleuven.be/mailman/listinfo/kuka-lwr for info on how to subscribe.
