ABB RobotStudio Adds Real-Time Collaboration

March 24, 2023
RobotStudio software allows teams to collaborate on robot programming and simulation from anywhere on any device.

ABB says its new RobotStudio Cloud is designed to enable individuals and teams to collaborate in real-time on robot cell designs, regardless of the device used to access the software. More specifically, this new capability in RobotStudio enables system integrators and engineering teams to design, develop and enhance robotic automation applications.

New features in RobotStudio Cloud include version control, which allows users to keep track of changes and have full transparency of any amendments. ABB says, with complete knowledge of who edited the program and when, developers can cut the time needed to resolve errors and performance issues. 

The company adds that use of RobotStudio’s cloud-based virtual controllers produces an exact digital twin to give developers confidence that—once installed in the real world—the robot will move as precisely as in the simulation. ABB says this digital twin capability allows for the fine-tuning and optimization that can help minimize waste or problems when production begins.

“New web-based tools like RobotStudio Cloud bring a new level of agility and flexibility to manufacturers in how they plan and design their robotic automation solutions,” says Marc Segura, president of ABB Robotics. “Offering a simplified user experience, RobotStudio Cloud helps to increase collaboration and reduce complexity, enabling both novices and experts to push the boundaries of robotics programming.”
