CloudGripper - An Open Cloud-Robotics Platform

Launching at IEEE/RSJ IROS, October 1st, 2023

What is the CloudGripper Project?

CloudGripper is an open source cloud robotics robot arm platform for remote robotic manipulation research and education purposes developed at KTH Royal Institute of Technology. CloudGripper will be launched on October 1st, 2023. Come visit us at our booth at IEEE/RSJ IROS in Detroit, USA to find out more and check back on this website on October 1st to learn more!

The initial release of CloudGripper was developed by Muhammad Zahid and Associate Prof. Florian Pokorny at the Division of the Robotics, Perception and Learning at KTH Royal Institute of Technology. A cloud robotics test-bed installation based on this design is currently being scaled to more than 100 robots as part of the WASP funded Swedish excellent research environment (NEST) grant "Intelligent Cloud Robotics for Real-Time Manipulation at Scale" coordinated by Florian Pokorny in collaboration with co-PIs Monowar Bhuyan, Erik Elmroth and Martina Maggio. This work is partially supported by the Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software program (WASP) funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation.
