Mobile Robot Platform Makes Research Easy

Description

MOVO, a mobile manipulation platform, is designed to aid in the research and experimentation of mobile robotics. MOVO has been fully designed and developed using the Robot Operating System (ROS), along with MoveIt! and Gazebo, and offers an application programming interface (API) that will provide researchers the most advanced functionality in all areas of robotics.

 

The feature-rich platform benefits from the low weight, low energy demand and compactness of Kinova's world-renowned manipulators, combined with a powerful omnidirectional mobile system and fully integrated navigational system. Its high-end, open-source architecture will make it easier to start any type of mobile manipulator application and will allow researchers more time to focus on their respective subjects.

 

In working with researchers across the globe, Kinova realizes the need for effective solutions that will allow them to meaningfully contribute to the world in innovative ways. The company will, therefore, provide dedicated support to researchers using MOVO during the beta stage to ensure success in their research and the best use of the new platform in their particular field.

 

MOVO will remain a part of the company's beta program until its official release, which is scheduled for 2018.
