Ned is a collaborative 6-axis robot based on open-source technologies designed for education, vocational training, and research laboratories.
Developed by Niryo and made in France, Ned is the ideal partner for education and research.
Indeed, this cobot offers the possibility to learn and test new uses of robotics oriented towards Industry 4.0.
Thanks to its aluminum structure, Ned has exemplary robustness to accomplish with fluidity and precision (0.5mm) the movements required by your robotic projects.
Including many improvements, Ned is designed to reproduce all the movements required in the most advanced uses in industry 4.0, with a precision of 0.5mm and a repeatability of 0.5mm.
Ned’s aluminum structure makes it exemplary robust, allowing it to accomplish with fluidity the movements required for your robotics projects.
This robot takes advantage of the capacities of the Raspberry Pi 4, with a 64-bit ARM V8 high-performance processor, 2Gb of RAM, and improved connectivity. Ned is a collaborative robot based on Ubuntu 18.04 and ROS (Robot Operating System) Melodic, an open-source solution created for
robotics. Through ROS, Ned has multiple libraries allowing you to conceive many programs, from the most simple to the most complex ones, responding then, in a flexible way, to your needs.
As part of education and research, Niryo gives you the possibility, with Ned, to have a collaborative
robot allowing you to prototype uses faithful to the industry reality:
Our desktop application Niryo Studio is designed with a visual programming interface based on Blockly (like Scratch). This interface does not require any programming skill to command the robot and is perfect for creating simple programs.
Create your own programs allowing you to create complex processes, such as programs made for multi-robot or needing the use of artificial intelligence for the vision.
Prototype complete industrial scenarios such as Pick & Place, which consists of taking an object so as to move it, and Pick & Pack, which allows to take an object and insert it in the packaging, as well as many other things.

Its aluminum structure allows the robot to perform the movements required by your robotic projects with fluidity.
The collaborative robot Ned takes full advantage of the capabilities of the Raspberry Pi 4, with a high-performance 64-bit ARM V8 processor, 2Gb of RAM, and improved connectivity.
Ned is a cobot based on Ubuntu 18.04 and ROS (Robot Operating System) Melodic, a complete open-source solution designed for robotics.
With ROS, Ned has a set of libraries to design programs from the simplest to the most complex to meet your needs in a flexible way.
By using Ned for education or research, you benefit from a collaborative robot with applications that are faithful to the industrial reality:
Using a visual programming method for the simplest processes (Blockly, similar to Scratch),
Creating programs to carry out more complex processes, whether it is robotic programs designed for one robot, multi-robot, artificial intelligence for vision, IoT…
Prototyping complete industrial scenarios such as "pick & place" (taking an object to move it), "pick & pack" (taking an object to insert it into a packaging) …
Ned fits perfectly into the ecosystem (not included) designed for Industry 4.0:
The Conveyor Belt allows you to prototype processes involved in production lines and can be controlled by Ned or autonomously,
The Vision Set and its onboard camera directly on the robot's wrist allow Ned to perform tasks with image recognition. Define your workspace with markers and benefit directly from advanced image processing functions for Industry 4.0.
Ned comes with a Custom Gripper, which allows you to manipulate many different objects. Its standard jaws allow you to catch many medium-sized objects, and it is possible to change them for those of your choice:
The jaws pack (not included), which consists of 3 different sets of jaws (XL, Flat, Precision), allows you to manipulate new types of objects.
If you own a 3D printer, you can create your own jaws to match your projects.
With the EasyConnect system, changing tools has never been so easy: in a few seconds, Ned is able to manipulate new objects (with a Vacuum Pump, a Large Gripper, an Adaptive Gripper and an Electromagnet) (not included).
Here’s Niryo One Studio, the free desktop application to use the robot. You can easily create complete programs with the Niryo Block interface. Based on Blockly (also similar to Scratch).
