MATLAB® is a high-level language and development environment used by millions of engineers for their research and design work. Robotic System Toolbox extends MATLAB with tools and algorithms specifically for designing, simulating, testing, and deploying robotic applications including UR series cobots.
MATLAB with Robotic System Toolbox is especially well suited for more specialized or sophisticated cobot applications which UR Pendants and graphical based programming tools are not designed for. This includes applications that involve machine learning or deep learning, computer vison, optimization, sensor fusion, or advanced signal processing.
After developing your UR application with MATLAB, you can verify it by connecting to URSim or deploying algorithms directly on UR series robots using ROS Toolbox and MATLAB Coder™.
