Gen3 Speaks Your Language

Get a head start on your projects so you can achieve results faster, whether you want to publish for research or working on a new and innovative commercial solution. Gen3 is ideal for dynamic human-robot interactions in unstructured environments.

  • 6 DoF or 7 DoF
  • ROS, MATLAB, and Simulink packages
  • Closed-loop low-level control at 1 kHz
  • Advanced programming in C++ and Python environments
  • Gazebo and MoveIt simulation environments
  • The intuitive Web App connects from any work desktop or mobile device

'Kinova's robot is robust and easy to use (not forgetting its awesome software), making it the ideal platform to prototype from. The new Gen3 looks like it has super-sized in terms of hardware, packing an even more powerful punch as a research tool.'

- Doug Morrison, PhD Researcher, Australian Centre for Robotic Vision

Control, Convenience and Connectivity

The Gen3 embedded controller makes it extremely practical and simple to connect your robot in a number of ways and is adaptable for multiple application needs. Indeed, you have multiple ways of controlling it, including bypassing the controller for direct access to each individual actuator with closed-loop control at 1 kHz. Kinova's Gen3 robot is adaptable for varying levels of expertise to test and perform simple or complex grasping and manipulation tasks.
