Abstract

One of the major problems in industry is a manual contour tracking approach for industrial robots such as in welding, sealing and painting applications. It is very tedious and time consuming job. A simpler cost effective solution at reasonable process quality is proposed to solve this problem. This solution implies designing: of smart arrangement of sensors, control algorithms, intelligent programming and parameters optimization. Normal industrial robot is being transformed into the autonomous contour tracking robot with more added values similar, for example, to the coordinate measuring machine. This new concept has been developed and tested on real industrial robot.
