Comau unveils its new Open Controller software that will be presented at European Robotics Forum 2024

Comau introduces the Open Controller proprietary software that will be on display at the 2024 edition of the European Robotics Forum (ERF), being held in Rimini (Palacongressi) from the 13th to the 15th of March. By facilitating seamless integration with external PCs and the use of additional control algorithms for more advanced control actions, the innovative control software lets users enjoy heightened precision and efficiency for their specific and unique applications. Helping industries, universities, and research centers deploy custom control algorithms and innovative trajectory generation methods, Open Controller ensures better control, performance, productivity and overall cost savings. 

The Open Controller software is designed to let the robot continue operating while users communicate the desired modes, enabling seamless mode transitions without disruption or the need to turn off the motors. And because the robot’s primary controller always remains actively engaged even when enhancing or changing parts of the control path from the external PC, Open Controller ensures the stability, safety, and the smooth execution of its software tasks.

Key benefits: 

• Increased computational power 

• Increased flexibility when gathering information from external sensors

• Fast prototyping 

• Easier development and testing of new algorithms and solutions.

Comau’s Open Controller facilitates effortless collaboration with external PCs and advanced control algorithms to optimize robot control processes. This innovative software is yet another example of our firm resolve to make robotics easy, open and increasingly efficient. It can also be added to any of our robot control units, which means that organizations can better optimize their robotic environments, leading to enhanced productivity and reduced overall costs.
