Ethernet KRL Interface – Communication between the rc_visard and KUKA KRL

EKIBridge - Robot Vision Interface for KUKA Industrial Robots

The Ethernet KRL Interface (EKIBridge) allows communicating with Roboception’s 3D stereo vision products from KUKA KRL via KUKA.EthernetKRL XML.

  • Use rc_reason software modules with KUKA robots without any external PC for facilitating the communication
  • Requires the KUKA.EthernetKRL add-on software package version 2.2 or newer
  • Suitable for use with any rc_visard (monochrome and color) or rc_cube

The Ethernet KRL Interface (EKIBridge) enables the use of all rc_reason software modules from KUKA KSS controllers without any external IPC.

The EKI Bridge can be used to programmatically do service calls, e.g. to start and stop individual computational nodes, or to use offered services such as the hand-eye calibration or the computation of grasp poses and set and get run-time parameters of computation nodes, e.g. of the camera, or disparity calculation.

Users have to activate the KUKA.EthernetKRL add-on software package version 2.2 or newer on the robot controller to use this component. This can be obtained from your KUKA robot supplier/vendor.
