Support for Kuka YouBot? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Are there any plans for Windows/MSRDS support for the Kuka YouBot hardware platform? I have seen older posts stating that Kuka was working together with Microsoft promoting educational stuff (in 2006 and 2008) but haven't seen anything on the YouBot platform. The platform is excellent for doing research on mobile manipulation and it would be even more excellent if it was possible to work with MSRDS and control the robot with C# code from Visual Studio. Hope something is in the pipeline?

  • At this time, there are no officially announced plans by Microsoft for future work with the Kuka YouBot.

    Parallax has released EDDIE per the Microsoft published specifications for this reference platform.  All manufacturers are encouraged to look at the specification design published by Microsoft.
