In the background of simulation system and industrial robot, this paper described the application features of OpenGL and focused on the design and implementation of simulation system of industrial robot. Then, we need to study the application and key technology of OpenGL in graphical simulation system and to explore the implementation method of the system. Finally, the disadvantages of OpenGL in specific industrial robot simulation system were described, and to achieve good results further improved measures were proposed in this paper.
