DENSO Robotics Posted 01/20/2010Simplifies Robot Setup, Reduces Development Costs
LONG BEACH, Calif. – DENSO Robotics announced that it has collaborated with National Instruments on a new NI LabVIEW library that simplifies robot setup, saving time and development costs. The new ImagingLab Robotics Library for DENSO contains a set of easy-to-use graphical functions that let users control and program DENSO robots and peripheral devices from within a single LabVIEW application.
“Although our robots are well known in the industry for being easy to set up and program, this new LabVIEW library makes it even easier,” said Peter Cavallo, robotics sales manager, DENSO Sales California. “Also, many of our customers are already using LabVIEW. For them, the library is a convenient way of integrating DENSO robots into their applications without having to learn a new programming language.”
The NI ImagingLab Robotics Library for DENSO can be used as a standalone module or along with the LabVIEW Real-Time Module, which allows design and graphical programming of real-time applications. The library can also be used with NI Smart Cameras for vision-guided robotics and NI data-acquisition hardware for measurement applications.
