Universal Robots has become a dominant provider of lightweight, robotic manipulators for industry, as well as for scientific research and education. Currently, there is no recommendable ROS driver for the UR robot family.

With the release of Universal Robots new e-Series, the demand for a ROS driver that supports the new manipulators and the newest ROS releases are even higher. The goal of this FTP are to develop a high performing, stable and sustainable interface between UR robots and ROS, that will enable all robot features that can be exploited within the current ROS Industrial driver paradigm.
