Actin® is general robot control and tasking framework built to meet the rigorous requirements of industrial, commercial, collaborative, and consumer robotic systems. Actin is licensed as a cross-platform C++ software development toolkit (SDK) and is used throughout the development cycle of your robotic system.
With the Actin SDK, roboticists are free to focus on what the robot does and where the end effectors and tools should be, not on how they get there. To this end, Actin supports advanced features not found in other commercial solutions, such as collision avoidance, interactive control, and collaborative robot features for any number of axes. Unlike open source or research solutions, Actin is built to support mission-critical applications and run on embedded systems. Actin enables and simplifies the programming of complex robotic motions used in a wide variety of applications, ranging from autonomous oil exploration, to robotic bin picking, to surgical robotics. In addition to being hardware agnostic, Actin users are not constrained by operating system. An expanded list of key features, including integration and platform details, can be found on the Actin Data Sheet.
In addition to all of this, here is a sampling of the robust capabilities Actin brings to the table:
The Actin SDK includes the following:
