Jan 25 '18 at 11:14 comment added 50k4 The iiwa is not just an arm, it has built-in drive amplifiers and communication protocoll. So first you will need to be able to communicate with the arm. Afterwards depending on what features you want to implement, you need to define them and for each feature you can make an estimation of development effort. Your questions cannot be answered generally, without a clear specification of the controller you want to develop.
Jan 25 '18 at 11:08 comment added El Zo @ 50k4: Great, answer, upvote. I have a question, though.What should I do, if I wanted to use an already existing robot arm like the KUKA Lbr iiwa and create my controller for it? What kind of information should I have on the arm, and how could it be done in step? How many people would it take to do that and in what time? Thanks
Oct 4 '17 at 19:51 comment added user3685427 This is a truly great answer. I am building a robotic arm from scratch that should be a smaller equivalent to industrial arms - but it will still weigh upwards of 50 pounds and have at minimum 100 separate wires (probably more like 250 wires), just to give a sense of scale. I have some methods to greatly simplify the software integration aspects, but it will still be a year-long project. I have concluded that the value of robots from the big companies like Fanuc, Kuka, ABB, and the like is the excellent packaging and system integration. A robot is pure chaos if you let all the pieces loose.

Oct 3 '17 at 13:08 comment added N. Staub Just want to point out that the last robots from KUKA are running Sunrise framework which allows to program the robot application in JAVA, this is true in particular for the KUKA LBR-iiwa their industrial work assistant robot

Could you please recommend some resources like books,blogs etc (add it to the answer if possible)? I think it will be a while before i comprehend the entire answer as there are lot of fine details.
