JR2 is an autonomous mobile manipulator, specially designed for the development of industrial mobile manipulation applications.
JR2 arm is a 6 DOF high quality industrial collaborative robot that can handle payloads up to 5 Kg (completely extended). The arm can mount almost any standard end effector, including 2 finger servo-grippers by Schunk or Weiss Robotics.
The base platform is omnidirectional using 4 high power motor wheels and is able to carry payloads up to 100 Kg. It mounts two rangefinders for navigation and safety and integrates two RGBD sensors in the front and rear parts to detect obstacles at different heights. The robot includes an optional self-recharging base station. The base is modular and can supply and interface additional application related hardware (internal connectivity: USB, RS232, GPIO and RJ45, external connectivity: USB, RJ45, power supplies 5, 12 VDC and battery).
The control architecture is open-source and modular, based on ROS.
