The mobile manipulator MMO-500 combines the omnidirectional robot MPO-500 with a light-weight robot arm, for example from Universal Robots.

Its Mecanum wheels allow the MMO-500 to move freely into any direction and thus to re-position the integrated arm very easily. This way the arm’s workspace is significantly enlarged without having to deal with any constraints and kinematics problems.

The MMO-500 can integrate most of the available light weight arms. Due to its big footprint and high payload, the MMO-500 is also capable of carrying the big Universal Robots arm UR10 which can handle loads up to 10 kg.

The platform’s movement can be controlled by the free Robot Operating System. The Universal Robots arm, like most suitable robot arms, can be configured with its original control software and manual control unit and connected to ROS.
