ur5_double_300x390.jpgAs robots take on increasingly complex tasks, they often need to communicate robot-to-robot when sharing actions and handing off parts to each other. This communication enables the robots to maintain efficiency and deliver fast production times. Universal Robots has an array of communication protocols to handle such tasks, including: MODBUS, ProfiNet, EtherNet/IP, TCP/IP, and XMLRPC. You can read more about these protocols and their applications on the Universal Robots blog.

Watch the video below for a fun example of how two robots talk to each other while solving a Rubik’s cube.
