Robotnik's RB-1 is an autonomous and configurable robot, focused on the field of research in indoor applications.

Mobile manipulator

RB-1 can be configured in different ways:

  • RB-1 without arm, ready to integrate a Kinova arm
  • RB-1 with 7 or 6 DOF arm with the option to integrate a 2 or 3 finger gripper
  • RB-1 with 7 DOF Gen3 Ultra lightweight arm from Kinova, 2D / 3D vision and parallel gripper integrated


RB-1 can integrate the Kinova Gen2 Ultra lightweight robot 7, 6 or 4 DOF arm and incorporate a 2 or 3 fingers gripper or integrate the Gen3 Ultra lightweight robot arm of 7 GDL, integrated 2D / 3D vision and Robotiq 2F-85 parallel gripper. These allow users to interact with their environment in total safety, freedom and efficiency. Soundless and smoothy movement with unlimited rotation on each axis.


The manipulator base can be mounted with a wide range of lasers which have 5 to 30-60 meters operational range. Depending on the model, the view goes from 240º to 270º.

The software of the robot includes a control system, a tracking system (laser-based) and a navigation system, as well as a HMI user interface for diagnostics and remote control.

Pan-tilt unit

The robot integrates a 2 DOF pan-tilt unit for the perception of the environment by an included ORBBEC camera. The RGBD sensor has various applications on the robot. It can be used to recognize objects in the surrounding area, but also for navigation and location purposes by using benchmarks or new RGBD Slam algorithms .

RB-1 uses an open architecture and modular control based on ROS.
