This really depends on two requirements:
  • the type of outputs your PLC can create and inputs it can process
  • the type of robotic platform you wish to work with

Most robotic platforms will require specific types of signal to control its various parts and create various outputs that need to be processed to understand its situation.

You can find our robotic kits here. Of course, not all of them will be appropriate for your case.
The first step should be to determine which type of robotic platform you wish to work with, such as:

Once you've figured out what kind of robot you want then its time to identify what kind of outputs/inputs (and how many) your PLC can work with.

With both of these pieces of information available it will be much easier to recommend something appropriate for your needs.
