JOpenShowVar is a Java open-source cross-platform communication interface to Kuka robots that allows for reading and writing variables and data structures of the controlled manipulators. This interface is compatible with all Kuka robots that use KR C4 and previous versions, and runs as a client on a remote machine (computer) connected with the Kuka controller via TCP/IP. It is possible to use JOpenShowVar with various different applications, making it possible to use a variety of input devices and to develop new control methods. JOpenShowVar is meant to be used by students and researchers and it is available on the Internet under a Berkeley Software Distribution (BSD) license at, along with all the documentation and some demo videos.
