Visual Components Robotics Library

960_VC_202

Overview

The LabVIEW Robotics Library for Visual Components is a free interface for robot control in Visual Components 3DCreate. The family of 3D Digital factory simulations from Visual Components(www.visualcomponents.com) consists of extensive choices of simulating industrial robots, conveyors, sensors, and other manufacturing tools. Over 15 different robot brands and more than 800 robot models are available for high-quality simulation. You do not need a real robot to get started with your application development – simply use a virtual robot instead. Evaluate different robot types: anthropomorphic, SCARA and parallel from various suppliers.

With LabVIEW software, you can perform offline robot teaching, execute your own robot programs, and debug and verify external events handling (sensor signals or user actions). In addition, you can perform collision detection tests, reachability tests, and robot cell performance tests all within a virtual space.

Realistic simulation has remarkable advantages in educational institutes for applied robotics basics and advance industrial applications study.
