Efficient safe-motion solutions for robot control

Increasingly, physical barriers between humans and robots are being removed in factories to facilitate seamless collaboration. Ensuring the uninterrupted safety and functionality of robots becomes even more critical to prevent hazards and damages. Neuron Automation develops comprehensive solutions that enable the programmability of safety functions, as well as the standardization and parameterization of individual robot arms and the central control unit using a single
engineering tool.


  • Safety Motion module with a small footprint, cost-effective implementation, and rapid time-to-market for robotic arms
  • Full safe functionality in a powerful safe controller
  • Programmability of safety functions by ODM independent of firmware and without the need for recertification
  • Programming in not only high-level languages but also IEC 61131-3 languages
  • Safe fieldbus stacks for interfacing with external systems
  • Simple and safe parameterization by the OEM user, integrated with ODM's diagnostic and configuration tools
  • To avoid the need for recertification with every change, the application must be decoupled from the firmware
  • Certified safe floating-point arithmetic must be available to calculate custom kinematic transformations


  • Collaboration between humans and machines is increasingly demanded
  • When collaborating functional safety is essential!
  • Currently, safe requirements are often coupled with hardware and firmware
  • Convenient safe solutions need to be offered
  • Separation of hardware/firmware and software is necessary to simplify certifications

Solutions / Toolkit

  • T3-qualified engineering solution Neuron Power Engineer (safety functions can be programmed independently of the target system firmware)
  • Simple safety parameterization with PLCopen library and Neuron Safe Engineer
  • Safe-Motion library for implementing safety motion applications
  • Floating-Point library for implementing complex mathematical calculations for robotic movements
  • Safe Fieldbus Stack (FSoE) as a pre-certified and "ready to use" component
  • The safety-certified runtime system Neuron RTS safe with a small footprint that enables the execution of safe applications in robotic devices
