Hardware Support

Capabilities and Features

Robotics System Toolbox Support Package for Universal Robots UR Series Manipulators enables you to connect and control manipulators using MATLAB and Simulink.

The hardware support package lets you perform these tasks:

  • Control Universal Robot cobots using the ROS interface based on MATLAB with the Universal_Robots_ROS_Driver package
  • Prototype UR cobot applications using prebuilt algorithms in URSim or Gazebo simulation and verify the same on hardware using connected I/O
  • Deploy cobot applications as a standalone ROS node
  • Design real-world robotics applications with vision processing and deep learning in MATLAB and validate them with Universal Robots cobots
