Objectives and Brief outline of laboratory
This Laboratory provides a basic exposure to Industrial Robot Kinematics, Control and Programming. Robots are widely used in industry for a variety of applications wherein a manipulator has to be programmed to carry out operations in 3D space with positioning and orientation control of a job or tool within a workspace.
Developing the understanding the Kinematics - Forward, Inverse and a workspace of the robot for different popular configurations is covered in this laboratory by simulations. To control of motion of such robots is usually achieved using electric drives and servo control. Basics of servo motion control of motion of the joint actuators as well as coordinated control of several axes are treated in the second part of the laboratory exposure.
