Robot programming: Factory in a day use case

06 Oct 2016

Programming robots

Programming industrial robots to perform repetitive tasks is time-consuming. Based on our knowledge in manipulation planning, we have developed

Manipulation planning

When an robot manipulates objects, the motions of the objects are subject to constraints:

These constraints raises scientific issues that we try to address by designing dedicated algorithms.

The use case

Details on the Factory In A Day use case can be found here.

The full sequence

The robot grasp each of 8 parts, move them to the caroussel where they are processed, put them back to the initially empty tray, and finally stacks the empty tray on top of the full tray.
