Linux has a lot to offer the automation industry. It is a stable and scalable alternative to Windows operating systems that allows for arguably greater connectivity between devices and systems.
The Platform Facilitates Accelerated Development of Innovative, Power-Efficient, High Computing Robots and Drones for Enterprise, Industrial and Professional Service Applications.
In a recent project for Mercedes-Benz (Daimler AG) RobCo S.W.A.T. used RoboDK software to simulate ABB and Motoman robots working on a range of automotive manufacturing tasks including assembly and painting.
Some new technologies helped the evolution of mobile apps towards automation. It all started with the advanced data analytics engines and APIs incorporated by enterprise app developers to address user needs more precisely and contextually.
Robots and software work hand in hand, but what does this mean in concrete terms? How is software essential for robots? Why and how is it necessary to develop software specifically adapted to robotic applications? What are the future trends in software for robotics?

Like smartphones and PCs, robotics began as a hardware revolution, but today, software is the force that's reshaping the industry. Are you ready? Here are six crucial questions every company needs to ask about the software behind their robotic solutions
The Robust Hardware Design and Robotic Software Lies at the Heart of Efficient Robotic Drilling Applications
Presently, end-user industries such as oil & gas, construction, manufacturing, aerospace, and healthcare industries are witnessing significant traction for high precision automated drilling robots.
As a human, you have an intuition about how a good movement looks. Transferring that intuition to the robot happens more naturally through guiding than through writing a sequence of motor control commands.
Darrell Etherington for TechCrunch: Its first product is a sensor-laden suit that a person can wear to demonstrate actions so that a robot can then replicate what they do.
Besides being expensive and proprietary, migrating to newer products is challenging when hardware components are involved.
This new software is the first of its kind to connect all of your devices from a single controller, which extends the smart, flexible power of our robots to the entire work cell and provides unparalleled speed to deployment.
The use of a Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) is increasingly common in embedded software designs.
Unlike other solutions, AImotive's full stack software uses the power of artificial intelligence to "see" fine detail and predict behavior, making it easier to manage common driving concerns such as poor visibility and adverse conditions.
Symmetric Multiprocessing or Virtualization: Maximizing the Value and Power of a Soft-Control Architecture
For a truly simplified and streamlined architecture that is high-performing, scalable, efficient. and built for long-term value, an SMP-enabled Soft-Control Architecture is recommended.

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
