Esperant.O is a beta software plug-in developed by Brandon Kruysman and Jonathan Proto that bridges the gap between designers and industrial robotics. Using the software platform Maya by Autodesk, esperant.O affords the ability to generate g-code for the movement control of Stäubli robots while providing commonly used animation techniques for designers.
The ability to use the features inherent in Maya, such as constraint models, motion path control, and the abundance of other parametric features, opens up an immense range of possibilities and new applications for industrial robotics and design. Using standard animation features, designers can perform synchronous tasks with ease using multiple robots, with control over timing, speed, and acceleration.
