V-Sido Features and Typical Case Studies

“V-Sido” (pronunciation: /b ʊʃɪ doʊ óʊ és/) is a robot control software with high versatility, which can control various kinds of robots.

The features of “V-Sido”

The features of “V-Sido” are “Real-time control” and “Stability” even when inflicted with sudden shocks or on rough surfaces. Also, various input devices such as smartphones are available for robot control. With V-Sido, you can operate a robot by roughly appointing a position to the finger tips or foot and V-Sido does the rest to best achieve the appointed position by moving other body parts accordingly.
As it controls various kinds of actuators (servo motors of several manufacturers, hydraulic systems, hydraulic-air servos and others), robots of various manufacturers can be operated via V-Sido.
Please refer to the movie presentation above for adoption examples.
We, Asratec, would like various robot manufacturers to use “V-Sido”.
Please consider adopting “V-Sido” for development of your robots.

Adoption examples

Another feature of V-Sido is its high versatility. It controls various kinds of actuators (servo motors of several manufacturers, hydraulic systems, hydraulic-air servos and more) for various shapes and sizes of robots. As V-Sido can control a variety of robots, robot development can be executed efficiently.
Robots below are examples in which V-Sido is used. These various robots all can be controlled via V-Sido.
