🤖 Robot Franka Research 3 -  Intel RealSense D435 - HCR Lab /Jozef Stefan Institute -Participants in the euROBIN Competition - European Robotics Week 2024



From November 25 to 28, 2024, the 1st euROBIN Coopetition will take place in Nancy, France, following Humanoids 2024, the IEEE-RAS 2024 International Conference on Humanoid Robots.

euROBIN coopetitions are designed not only to test individual team capabilities but also to foster collaborative innovation by rewarding teams for both their own achievements and the successful integration of their developed modules by others. By promoting modularity, reusability, and transferability in robotic systems, euROBIN aims to advance the frontier of robotics and artificial intelligence, driving progress in diverse application domains such as robotic manufacturing, personal robotics, and outdoor robotics for sustainable communities. Hereby, with these profiles we would like to welcome you to the pioneering world of the euROBIN project, where the brightest robotic teams from across Europe converge to participate in this groundbreaking event.

Franka Research 3 is the reference world-class, force sensitive robot system that empowers researchers with easy-to-use robot features as well as with low-level access to robot's control and learning capabilities.

The Intel® RealSense™ D435 camera offers a very wide field of view, along with a global shutter on the depth sensor that is ideal for fast-moving applications. A powerful, full-featured depth camera.



Franka Research 3's robot system includes the Arm and its Control. The force sensitive and agile Arm features 7 DOF with torque sensors at each joint, industrial-grade pose repeatability of +/- 0.1 mm and negligible path deviation even at high velocities. It comes with a payload of 3 kg, a reach of 855 mm and a workspace coverage of 94.5%.

FCI is the ideal interface to explore low-level programming and control schemes, providing the current status of the robot and enabling its direct torque control, at 1 kHz. On top of the C++ interface libfranka, integration with the most popular ecosystems ROS, ROS 2 and MATLAB & Simulink.



 The combination of a wide field of view and a global shutter sensor in the D435 make it the preferred solution for applications such as robotic navigation and object recognition. Global shutter sensors provide high sensitivity in low-light conditions, allowing robots to navigate spaces with the lights off. Ideal for low light conditions and wide field of vision. D435 depth camera is part of Intel® RealSense™.

The D400 series of cameras, a line incorporating Intel's latest depth-sensing hardware and software, packages them into easy-to-integrate products. Perfect for developers, manufacturers, and innovators looking to add depth sensing to devices, Intel® RealSense™ D400 Series cameras offer easy, out-of-the-box integration and enable a whole new generation of smart vision-equipped devices.
