System description

KUKA is a 6-degree-of-freedom industrial robotic arm. The arm has 6 degrees of freedom allowing position and orientation control of the end-effector. Movements can be performed manually with the controller. A program with a planned trajectory can be written with KUKA’s Robotic Language (KRL). The movements can also be controlled by an external computer thanks to the Ethernet interface (RSI). The arm is used in the project INVERITAS to hold a client satellite.
