How it works

You have your own RoboLive® server.
You provide it with data, it analyzes the data and distributes the results to your people.
DetailsManufacturers_Architecture
Your authorized users can control the planned process data. For example, they can add a weld, change the planned robot for a process, or modify process IDs.Your standard users can access results using the RoboLive® client software, which is included for everyone.
