ofxRobotArm is an openFrameworks addon for doing creative things with robot arms. The goal of the addon is to remove as many technical barriers as possible to get up and running with 6-axis robots. Included are a number of examples that show you how different ways of controlling and interacting with a robot arm, including direct manipulation, geometry-based manipulation, motion capture-based interactions, and keyframe animation. By developing ofxRobotArm for openFrameworks, we hope to help you extend human-robot interaction in new and diverse ways.

ofxURDriver is an openFrameworks addon for controlling and interacting with Universal Robots robotic arms. Development for ofxRobotArm is sponsored by The Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry. Technical development was lead by Dan Moore with examples by Madeline Gannon.
