Universal Robots Expands Partnership with MathWorks

by Pieter Werner

Universal Robots has broadened its collaboration with MathWorks, a company providing mathematical computing software, by Universal Robots’ entry into the MathWorks Connections Program. The program supports organizations developing products, training, and consulting based on MATLAB and Simulink┬« platforms. Previously, MathWorks had joined the UR+ partner program, a part of the Universal Robots ecosystem that includes over 300 developer companies.

This collaboration is a commitment from both companies to aid in the development of advanced cobot applications, ensuring compatibility with new releases from MathWorks. A result of this partnership has been the development of a support package for the Robotics System Toolbox, launched earlier. This tool enables engineers to design, simulate, test, and deploy MATLAB-based cobot applications using Universal Robots’ cobots.

Jim Tung, MathWorks Fellow, highlighted the alliance’s role in advancing automation workflows. Jesper Kildegaard Poulsen, Senior Director of Digital Ecosystems at Universal Robots, also expressed satisfaction with joining the Connections Program, emphasizing the combined efforts to simplify advanced cobot deployments.

Additionally, the two companies are collaborating in organizing the Autonomous Robot Manipulation Challenge at RoboCup 2024, taking place in July in Eindhoven, Netherlands. This educational and scientific competition, which Universal Robots and MathWorks have co-organized since 2021, challenges young researchers and students in the field of autonomous robot manipulation. Universal Robots will provide UR5e robots for the competition’s final stages, further underscoring the deepening relationship between the two companies and their commitment to advancing robotic technologies.
