Developing industrial robotics require knowledge and experience in many engineering domains, including mechanical design, perception, decision making, control design, and embedded systems.  This webinar discusses a complete industrial robotics workflow from perception to motion. We will walk through the development of a pick-and-place robot manipulator application. Some of the topics that will be covered include:

  • Performing scalable physics simulation

  • Designing perception algorithm using computer vision and deep learning

  • Setting up co-simulation with sensor and environment models

  • Using motion planning with obstacle avoidance

  • Using supervisory logic and control using state machine

  • Achieving advanced control via reinforcement learning

  • Connecting hardware through ROS network and deployment



Through a pick-and-place robot manipulator application, we will cover:

  • Creating custom robot designs and importing robot models from CAD tools

  • Developing autonomous robotics algorithm

  • Simulation-based testing and validation

  • Deployment


Please allow approximately 45 minutes to attend the presentation and Q&A session. We will be recording this webinar, so if you can't make it for the live broadcast, register and we will send you a link to watch it on-demand.
