Abstract:

A RESEARCH PROGRAM IS PROPOSED TO ESTABLISH ALGORITHMS FOR PROGRAMMING OF ROBOTS WITH MULTIPLE AND REDUNDANT AXES OF MOTION. THE TARGETED AREA OF APPLICATION IS ARC WELDING WHERE CONSTRAINTS OF WELD POSITION, WELD TRAVEL SPEED, AND ORIENTATION OF TORCH AND WIRE GUIDE (RELATIVE TO EACH OTHER AND RELATIVE TO THE JOINT) ARE IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS THATMUST BE DEALT WITH IN THE PATH PROGRAMMING TASK. IT WILL BETHE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING ALGORITHMS FOR ROBOTIC WELD PATH PROGRAMMING THAT ARE GENERIC TO ANY ROBOT/POSITIONER SYSTEM CAPABLE OF ACCEPTING THE KINEMATIC TRANSFORMATION MATRIX, POSITIONER AXES VALUES, AND VELOCITY INFORMATION FROM A HOST COMPUTER.
