Material handling robots are replacing human workers in most of the manufacturing shop floors. Robot operating system is an open-source framework that enables visualization and implements various complex robots and their functions. A 6-DoF robotic manipulator with a gripper is designed to perform the pick and place operations. The aim is to integrate the designed robot with the robot operating system. The integrated system is then visualized and controlled using a gazebo and RViz to perform pick and place operations.
