Product overview

Meet Ned2, our new and improved 6-axis collaborative robot!

Discover Ned2, our new and improved 6-axis collaborative robot based on open-source technologies designed for Education, Research & Development, and Industry 4.0.

For several years now, Niryo’s ambition has been to make robotics evident to tomorrow’s industry players.



Following its predecessor, Ned2 is the ideal cobot to meet your various needs in terms of prototyping Industry 4.0 oriented applications. Its six axis give it a range of motion that meets the needs of the industry.

Ned2 will continue to meet your requirements in terms of robustness, precision (0.5 mm) and repeatability (0.5 mm). The reworked plastic injection moulded covers reduce its net weight and improve its robustness and finish.

Ned2 is based on Ubuntu 18.04 and ROS Melodic and benefits from the capabilities of the Raspberry PI 4, a high performance 64-bit ARM V8 processor and 4gb of RAM.

Discover a robot with increased performances, thanks to new servo motors featuring Silent Stepper Technology, significantly reduces the noise level of the robot.


Students, engineers or researchers, bring your various collaborative robotics projects to life with Ned2.

  • With Niryo Studio, learn robotics programming at your own pace through a visual and intuitive interface based on Blockly. Set up a multitude of projects in the easiest way possible. 
  • Perform advanced processes based on artificial intelligence and image recognition with our Vision Set, which includes a camera and tools to create workspaces for your robot.
  • With our Conveyor Belt and all the accessories offered by Niryo, implement complete Industry 4.0 processes, such as Pick & Place processes, in a concrete and realistic way.

Open-source, Ned2 allows you to develop without any limits and to implement use cases that meet your own needs.


Discover a complete ecosystem reworked to fit your needs:

  • A Conveyor Belt, allowing you to set up processes that reproduce industrial production lines.
  • A Vision Set allowing the robot to perform tasks based on image processing and artificial intelligence, responding to the challenges raised by Industry 4.0.

Redesigned Tools

We have redesigned a large part of our ecosystem and the tools that make it,  while making it easier for you to get started:

  • The Easy Connect interface is now based on a magnetic attachment system more robust and reliable. Changing tools has never been so easy and fast;
  • Our different grippers have been reworked to improve their robustness and ergonomics with new motors, making it easier to grip various objects;
  • Our new vacuum pump allows you to go even further and grasp objects more firmly thanks to the improvement of its suction system;
  • Finally, our Vision Set has also been reworked to further simplify use cases that rely on the use of vision.

Control Ned2

There are different ways to control Ned2, from the most instinctive to the most complex:

  • Using the control panel on the robot’s wrist, move your robot’s arm with your fingertips using the “Freemotion” mode.
  • Use Niryo Studio, our visual and intuitive programming interface based on Blockly, and create your programs by selecting multiple blocks.
  • With its digital inputs and outputs, control Ned2 with an Arduino board or a Raspberry Pi.
  • Control Ned2 via our Python and Modbus APIs, or dive into the heart of the robot by developing your own ROS nodes in Python or C++. Develop new ways to control Ned2 for your different projects.
