About this book


Industrial Robots Programming focuses on designing and building robotic manufacturing cells, and explores the capabilities of today’s industrial equipment as well as the latest computer and software technologies. Special attention is given to the input devices and systems that create efficient human-machine interfaces, and how they help non-technical personnel perform necessary programming, control, and supervision tasks.

Drawing upon years of practical experience and using numerous examples and illustrative applications, J. Norberto Pires covers robotics programming as it applies to:

  • The current industrial robotic equipment, including manipulators, control systems, and programming environments.

  • Software interfaces that can be used to develop distributed industrial manufacturing cells and techniques which can be used to build interfaces between robots and computers.

  • Real-world applications with examples designed and implemented recently in the lab.

  • Keywords

    control control system design industrial robot programming robot robotics
