ROS-based package for absolute dynamics robot calibration

The goal of the project ROSdyn is to realize a ROS-based package that implement a fully automated procedure able to calibrate the robot dynamics model. ROS, the Robot Operating System, is arguably the Open Source Software stack most widely adopted by today’s robot builders. It can be commonly found in service robots and drones, among the others. It can also be of great value to industrial robotics and automation as the vehicle for the main traits of Open Source: collaborative design, and a big and diverse community of users and developers. The use of ROS ecosystem enables the standardization of several steps of the procedure, such as the messages exchanged between nodes. A further step towards standardization is represented by the use of ROS-I robot drivers that allow a standard access to all the robot information enabling the dynamics model calibration on commercial IR.
The RosDyn project is funded by the EU H2020 ROSin (Home – ROSIN ( ROSIN is a project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 732287, that aims to amplify its impact by making ROS-Industrial better and even more business-friendly and accessible.
The RosDyn project runs over a period of three years from June 2018 to May 2021
