A MATLAB toolbox for controlling and programming KUKA robots and a list of robotics toolboxes

M. Safeea and P. Neto, KUKA Sunrise Toolbox: Interfacing Collaborative Robots With MATLAB, IEEE Robotics & Automation Magazine, vol. 26, no. 1, pp. 91-96, 2019 DOI: 10.1109/MRA.2018.2877776.

Collaborative robots are increasingly present in our lives. The KUKA LBR iiwa, equipped with the KUKA Sunrise.OS controller, is one example of a collaborative/sensitive robot. This tutorial presents the KUKA Sunrise Toolbox (KST), a MATLAB toolbox that interfaces with KUKA Sunrise.OS. KST contains functionalities for networking, soft control in real time, point-to-point motion, parameter setters/getters, general purpose, and physical interaction. It includes approximately 100 functions and runs on a remote computer connected with the KUKA Sunrise controller via Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP). The potentialities of the KST are demonstrated in nine application examples.
