NI, Toshiba Machine and ImagingLab Collaborate to Streamline Robotics Application Development

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

NI announced today that ImagingLab, an NI Alliance Partner specializing in vision and robotics integration, has added a new robotics library for Toshiba Machine robots. This library of graphical functions is specially optimized for use with NI LabVIEW system design software, which helps the user control all aspects of a robotics system without requiring complex robotics programming expertise.



Because engineers can use a single LabVIEW application to control everything from part handling to advanced measurements, it is ideal for those who would normally avoid using robotics in their applications because of complexity concerns.



“Using the ImagingLab Robotics Library for Toshiba Machine robots, engineers and scientists can take advantage of the productivity and reliability of LabVIEW,” said Jamie Smith, director of embedded systems marketing at National Instruments. “Engineers can quickly integrate robotics into advanced applications such as laboratory automation, precise component assembly and complex testing.”
