Dear rosthusiasts,

we're happy to announce densowave, a ROS/MoveIt! interface for
industrial manipulators from Denso Wave Inc.


Key factors:

- Currently works with VS-060, vertical multi-joint robot from Denso Wave.
- ROS communicates using UDP-based standardized protocol (ORiN) to
the embedded controller computer that has been achieving
industry-proven reliability. It also has mechanism to detect faulty
commands. That said as a whole the system maintains the same level of
safeness with their commercial product setting.
- However ROS interface is still experimental and feedback is highly
appreciated. Please try out manipulation in RViz without the real
- Work done by U-Tokyo. Maintenance by Tokyo Opensource Robotics
Kyokai Association

Lastly, credit goes to Denso Wave who provides the robot's model to
the opensource community.

!Happy opensource robotics!
