LWR Overview

What is LWR?

Kuka’s LBR iiwa is the world’s first series-produced sensitive, and therefore HRC-compatible, robot. With the LBR iiwa, humans and robots can work together on highly sensitive tasks in close cooperation, opening the possibility of new applications and paving the way for greater cost-effectiveness and efficiency.

Features:


Quick reactions

LBR iiwa’s joint torque sensors can detect contact immediately and reduce its level of force and speed instantly. Its position and compliance control enables it to handle delicate components without creating crushing and shearing hazards.

Able to learn

Ability to choose from three operating modes and program the LBR iiwa via simulation: indicate the desired position and it will remember the coordinates of the path point. Stop for breaks and control it with simple touch commands.

Sensitive
The lightweight LBR iiwa with its high-performance servo control is able to detect contours quickly under force control. It establishes the correct installation position and mounts components quickly and with the utmost precision with an axis-specific torque accuracy of ±2% of the maximum torque. The LBR iiwa can also find small, delicate components in next to no time without your assistance.

Independent

The LBR iiwa's controller, KUKA Sunrise Cabinet, simplifies the quick start-up of even complex applications.

Title
Expensive but good robot
Pro
This model is very good, much more robust than competitors. I found this model very popular in the research community, which makes easy to find online support.
Con
The robot was pretty expensive. For academic research, it is hard to afford kuka's requests. Moreover, the use is less user-friendly w.r.t. other competitors. Hard to use as first experience. This model is also pretty old, and we had multiple issues (both mechanical and connection-related) during the use from time to time (but our model was many years old).

Title
We used the robot in our research lab for pick-and-place applications, human-robot collaboration, and depalletizing operations.
Pro
7-DOF manipulator that integrates joint torque sensors and allows for direct torque control.
Con
This robot was really expensive at the time. The programming interface through the teach pendant is not really user-friendly, so it will take some time to understand how to program the robot. Kuka does not provide an official ROS wrapper, so you need to rely on third-part software packages that are not always optimized or reliable.
