Product Overview

DELMIA - Realistic Robot Simulation provides accurate robot cycle time estimates and motion trajectories in the DELMIA simulation system. Because RRS interfaces with the actual robot controller software, users obtain accurate motion profiles as the simulated robot performs its task.

DELMIA - Realistic Robot Simulation is targeted at the automotive industry, which typically requires cycle time estimates within a 5 percent range of actual values. RRS efficiently and accurately validates robot motion behavior.

Product Key Customer Benefits

Integrates with native robot controller software
DELMIA - Realistic Robot Simulation currently supports the ABB S4C/S4C PLUS/IRC5, COMAU C3G/C4G, DUERR ECO RC2, FANUC RJ3-iA/RJ3-iB/R-30iA, HYUNDAI Hi4A, KUKA KRC, NACHI AR/AW/AX, and YASKAWA (Motoman) XRC/NX100 robot controller software (RCS) modules. RRS communicates with the same robot vendor supplied controller software used in the physical robots. This provides a high-degree of accuracy between the robot simulation viewed on a user's computer screen and the actual robot motion.

Provides accurate motion planning for cycle-time analysis and collision detection
Using DELMIA - Realistic Robot Simulation, users can accurately simulate a robot s motion and resolve any potential collisions between the robot and the various production elements. Dynamics related effects of payload on motion planning can only be accurately simulated using RRS.

Supports concurrent simulation of multiple robots and resources, such as positioning devices and human models
DELMIA - Realistic Robot Simulation supports concurrent simulation of multiple robots in complex workcells involving other resources, such as positioning devices and human models. This helps resolve any potential collisions between multiple robots and the various production elements.

Displays native robot error messages on computer screen
Because Realistic Robot Simulation communicates with the native robot controller software, the user will observe the robot's actual error messages at the exact same point in the simulation as would occur with the actual robot. This allows the detection of potential robot program errors before the actual download thereby avoiding costly last minute surprises.

Supports the Windows NT and Unix platforms using a client/server architecture
DELMIA - Realistic Robot Simulation is available on all standard DELMIA V5 platforms. This includes Windows NT and many Unix platforms. The RCS server program, which includes the native robot controller software, is available on those platforms that have been certified by the robot vendor. Using a networked client/server architecture, DELMIA RRS may communicate with an RCS server running on the same machine or on any other machine in the extended enterprise. This approach provides the greatest flexibility in supporting a customer s standard hardware platforms, while at the same time taking into account platform limitations of native controller software imposed by robot vendors.

Supports robots with external axes
RRS is applicable to standard 4 and 6 axis robots as well as robotic systems with external axes including end of arm tooling and robot-on-rail systems

Provides accurate reachability studies through the use of RCS-based inverse kinematics
For devices connected to RCS modules that support inverse kinematics, all V5 commands that invoke inverse kinematics (such as Jog, Teach, Reach, Auto Place, etc.) then operate using RRS-based inverse kinematics. When RRS is disabled, default inverse kinematics is re-enabled for the device. Using the RCS for inverse kinematics computation improves the accuracy of reachability analysis around robot singular positions and points around the robot's travel limit extremes.

DELMIA V5 RRS Interfaces share the same source code as the proven D5 RRS interfaces
Through source code commonality with the proven DELMIA D5 RRS counterpart, DELMIA V5 RRS leverages the strong effort placed on perfecting the DELMIA D5 RRS solution over the years.
