Franka Research 3


Franka Research 3 is the reference world-class, force sensitive robot system that empowers researchers with easy-to-use robot features as well as with low-level access to robot's control and learning capabilities.  

What's Included

  • Robot System: Franka Research 3´s robot system includes the Arm and its Control. The force sensitive and agile Arm features 7 DOF with torque sensors at each joint, industrial-grade pose repeatability of +/- 0.1 mm and negligible path deviation even at high velocities. It comes with a payload of 3 kg, a reach of 855 mm and a workspace coverage of 94.5 %.
  • FCI (Franka Control Interface): FCI is the ideal interface to explore low-level programming and control schemes, providing the current status of the robot and enabling its direct torque control, at 1 kHz. On top of the C++ interface libfranka, integration with the most popular ecosystems ROS, ROS2 and MATLAB & Simulink is available!
