Parametric programming of industrial robots

Paweł Szulczyński / Krzysztof Kozłowski
Published Online: 2015-07-10 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/acsc-2015-0014


This article proposes the use of parametric design software, commonly used by architects, in order to obtain complex trajectory and program code for industrial robots. The paper describes the drawbacks of existing solutions and proposes a new script to obtain a correct program. The result of the algorithm was verified experimentally.
