Plan and simulate your robot-based automation solution with ArtiMinds RPS. Realize your applications with a minimal amount of expensive special-purpose hardware. Easily set up your robot using a broad set of standard components like grippers, force-torque sensors and vision sensors. Import CAD files to quickly check reachability and collisions of the robot. Choose the best hardware suitable for your process and optimize the layout of the robot cell using the reachability assistant. Easily generate paths from CAD to validate the robot motions as early as possible – for specific tasks like dispensing, cutting or deburring.
ArtiMinds RPS & LAR in action
In three steps to a robotic automation solution
It seems to be a long way from a first idea to a deployed robot-based automation solution, but actually you only need three steps. For sure, this steps include a lot of different taskes, but the special features and innovative approaches of the robot programming software ArtiMinds RPS and the analysis tool ArtiMinds LAR support you perfectly in every single phase.
Every robot application goes through three phases or steps in its life cycle: planning & programming, commissioning & ongoing operation and analysis & optimization.
Since it´s different people, who are usually responsible the associated tasks, each phase requires special tools, individual know-how and good coordination between the individual process owners.
A software that can be used in all phases and across the different processes and tasks brings great advantages and saves time and money. ArtiMinds RPS convinces exactly through this continuous approach. In particular, the user benefits from the fact that you can switch seamlessly between online and offline programming. In the planning phase, ArtiMinds RPS allows you to start programming offline, i.e. even without hardware or connection to the robot, and to plan and optimize the cell layout. To parameterize vision blocks with the real camera, analyze live sensor data or teach key poses on the real robot, you can switch to online mode at any time with just one a click.
The special features of ArtiMinds include automatically generated native robot code that runs directly on the manufacturer’s robot controller. Thus, ArtiMinds RPS translates your program, which you have created via drag & drop on a user-friendly, graphical and intuitive user interface, into the language of the robot. This avoids interface problems and also eliminates the need for specialized skills in the respective manufacturer’s software.
From a monetary perspective, ArtiMinds RPS offers significant potential savings in setting up and connecting external hardware as well as real competitive advantages. This is because the software significantly reduces the application’s susceptibility to errors, which leads to less production downtime . Changes or adaptations can be implemented by your employees without the need for an external service provider. If required, the ArtiMinds Automation Engineering Team will provide you with customized support.

The Analysis Tool Learning & Analytics for Robots ArtiMinds LAR perfectly complements ArtiMinds RPS. ArtiMinds LAR is specially designed for analyzing and optimizing your robot processes during and after commissioning. For this purpose, the software automatically collects live sensor data during operation and prepares them both numerically and graphically. This allows you to efficiently optimize production cycles in terms of stability, accuracy and speed. At the same time, LAR makes it possible to compare different program versions with each other. Thus, changes remain transparent and the “success” of an optimization can be evaluated more easily. In addition, the maintenance engineer benefits from PDF documentation, including stored comments, which the programmer can create out of the programming suite by simply clicking on one button.
ArtiMinds LAR: Save money – increase efficiency
- No downtime: optimizations can be made during operation
- Implementation can be done by your trained staff, i.e. special programming knowledge is not required
- ArtiMinds LAR connects the live data directly to the respective program templates of the RPS, so that changes can be made easily and quickly
- Optimized robot processes lead to a significantly lower error rate and thus to less scrap

ArtiMinds RPS offers a unique programming approach to simplify planning, setup and programming your robot application. At the heart of Artiminds RPS is a large template database to solve challenging robot tasks like force control, vision sensing and PLC communication – without writing a single line of robot program code. Choose from different programming techniques like Wizards or CAD to set up each template. At all times, you can switch between offline programming with CAD and online programming with the real robot, which requires only a network connection. Based on the templates, ArtiMinds RPS will automatically generate robot code for the standard controller of the robot manufacturer. No additional hardware is required during production and a broad set of robots and standard hardware components is supported – allowing a lean entry into flexible automation.
