Title: Software for a non-contacting robot inspection cell
Authors: Cowell, John R.
Issue Date: 1985
Publisher: © John. R. Cowell
Abstract: Robots have been employed for over a decade to perform simple repetitive tasks. In recent years however, with the advent of improved control systems, cheap microprocessors and the development of a range of sensors, the potential of the industrial robot has greatly increased. This research examines the viability of using an industrial robot with a laser transducer for fast non-contacting inspection. The robot used was an Asea IRb6. The range finding transducer was a Selcom Optocator. The microcomputer was an LSI-II/23. [Continues.]
