Rethink Robotics Intera Software

Current Release: Intera 3.3

Intera provides an easy to use graphical user interface that in-house staff can master quickly. The platform allows Baxter and Sawyer to be trained by demonstration, using context instead of coordinates to enable non-technical personnel to create and modify programs as needed. It intelligently handles changing environments, while providing an extensible platform that leverages modern tools such as ROS to maximize relevance and flexibility for the modern workforce.

Intera in Action

Intera 3 is the latest and by far the most impressive version of our revolutionary software platform, enabling Baxter to perform with over twice the speed, precision and motion quality of our flagship version. See for yourself how Baxter with Intera 3 stacks up against the original software of 2013. Sawyer also runs on Intera 3, so it will offer the same great usability characteristics and continue to improve its impressive capabilities over time.

What's New in Intera 3.3

Intera Video

This video tutorial demonstrates the new features available in Intera 3.3. These new features are available in both Baxter and Sawyer running Intera 3.3.

Baxter with the Power of Intera 3

Speed Video

Intera 3 is the latest and by far the most impressive version of our recolutionary software platform for manufacturing and production applications - with twice the speed, precision, and motion quality. Watch as Baxter does the same task almost 3 times faster on Intera 3, versus the 2013 version of the software.

Innovate. Improve. Repeat.


When we launched our flagship robot Baxter, we revolutionized the way in which repetitive production tasks could be automated. Since then, we have continued to build on our own innovation, with incremental improvements to the robot’s performance, capabilities and ease of use — all delivered via the power of the Intera platform. And with the introduction of Sawyer, we combine forward-thinking hardware with industry-leading software to deliver an unbeatable advantage for customers.

Latest and Greatest: Intera 3.3

The latest version of our software platform for both Baxter and Sawyer is Intera 3.3. It features a number of important updates over previous versions, and is backwards compatible for all robots sold to date. We encourage all customers with software subscriptions to upgrade to Intera 3.3 to capitalize on the latest features and functionality of this release. Check the “Settings / About” screen to verify which version of the software your robot is currently running. And visit the customer wiki for more information about how to upgrade to the latest and greatest release!
