Abstract

Graphical simulation facilities foster the design of efficient\nrobot motions and do not tie up or risk expensive equipment. For a\nsimilar reason, graphical simulation is recommended for university\nlaboratory classes in robotics. This study concerns the application of\ncomputer graphics for teaching robot kinematics. A description of the\nproblems faced by students studying robot kinematics is presented. The\neducational program package SIM-KIN, developed to assist beginning\nstudents in robotics to understand elementary robot kinematics is\ndescribed. The paper ends with recommendations for its implementation at\na university robotics laboratory
