New ema Release 1.8.1 available from 17th of december 2018

by Patrick Sammler  

ema 1.8.1 - new planning opportunities for Human-robot collaboration systems


The version contains new features for the digital human model, new geometric primitives and also many improvements in visualizations and the user interface. The main innovations of ema 1.8.1, however, relate to the modeling of MRK systems. With the new complex tasks and functions for the simulation of Human-robot collaboration, it is possible to plan, simulate and evaluate such systems more efficiently, in detail and more safely. In addition to tha users can also leverage from the new robot data from Stäubli, Yaskawa, Pilz and TM.
