Abstract

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