MODULAR AGV DRIVE PLATFORM
The modular AGV drive platform NATHAN is a development and evaluation platform for prototyping automated guided vehicles (AGVs). The multi-axis system is highly flexible and can be expanded as required. The basis platform comprises the drive systems and a frame made of aluminum profiles and comes fully assembled. It can be expanded with a control center that consists of the EM5 controller with CAN master and a powerboard, support wheels and assembly panels.
For connecting the AGV drive platform to ROS (Robot Operating System), Nanotec provides the open-source software EMROS .
The EM5 controller is fully programmable and equipped with Ethernet and USB interfaces, among others. Together with a ROS node for inter-process communication that is freely available from Nanotec, the EM5 controller can be easily integrated into a ROS.
