Hardware Support

Robot Manipulator Support from Robotics System Toolbox

Capabilities and Features

Robotics System Toolbox™ Support Package for Manipulators enables you to interface and control manipulators using MATLAB® and Simulink®.

The hardware support package lets you perform the following tasks:

  • Acquire various sensor data from the robot manipulator
  • Control the robot manipulator
  • Connect with the robot hardware to test and validate your algorithms
  • Prototype robot manipulator algorithms
  • Simulate robot manipulator using rigid body tree models from Robotics System Toolbox
