Siemens PLM Software (Plano, TX) has introduced RobotExpert software for robotics simulation and programming. The software enables the design, simulation, optimization, and offline programming of robotic applications to maximize the speed, flexibility, and operation of automated systems. It features an intuitive 3D environment and combines the ability to optimize robotic paths and improve cycle times, with the ability to simulate virtual mockups of manufacturing cells and systems.

The software includes a library of robots, and enables 3D modeling of additional robots and automation. It generates configurable motion paths based on the controller features, and allows calculation of cycle times and analysis of real-time performance. The software can detect collisions during robot simulation and motion.
