The platform for robotics
Almende has started a new initiative in collaboration with DoBots to lower the threshold to the robotics world. The initiative, Asimovo, will use cloud-based technology to create simulation environments online so that developing and testing robots is accessible to anyone, anywhere.
Asimovo is currently in a private beta with European universities and will be available for the wider public from Q1 ’22 onwards.

Iterative robot development
Asimovo makes it possible to collaborate on the development of a robot and work in the same simulated environment. The user can easily create and share its work. The simulation can easily be shared with a potential customer, who can zoom in and view the robot from different angles, possibly with VR glasses. The simulation can also be displayed on a phone or tablet and presented to others without worrying about the demo effect.
Turnkey ROS environment
Asimovo is ideally suited to simulate mechatronic systems as well as environments in which robot motion planning algorithms can be developed and tested. Beginners and advanced ROS users are able to work within the environment. With Asimovo, you can create a turnkey ROS environment in minutes with a fully functional robot moving in a virtual environment.
Simulate to experiment
More and more applications are simulated before the idea enters the real world. In the field of robotics, simulation environments are becoming increasingly popular. Makes sense because the costs of developing and building robots can be high. That is why simulation takes a central place in the world of robotics. It provides a safe environment to experiment with a valid digital representation of a system without incurring such high costs. In addition, skills are further developed and improved in order to promote effective learning around robotics.
