An app for every purpose

Robot apps incorporate the entire complexity of the system and represent modular building blocks of a production process such as grasping, plugging, insertion and screwing. Individual apps can be parameterized by means of showing the Franka Robot System poses by demonstration, or adding context relevant parameters such as speed, duration, forces, and triggering actions.
