Charla is the hardware counterpart integrated within Esperant.O that allows for a higher level of control and precision in the synchronization of multiple Staubli industrial robot arms. Through the implementation of low level electronics, Charla gives a ‘voice’ to the autonomous robot arms within the SRSL. Communication between robots in the form of Basic I/O’s not only helps to avoid collisions, but also gives designers an accessible route into end arm tooling integration. .
