Graphical-Interactive System for CAD and Simulation of Manipulation Systems
CAMS is a graphical-interactive software system for CAD and simulation cf manipulation systems, based on an originally developed analytical theory. It deals with fundamental problems concerning structure, kinematics, dynamics and accuracy.
CAMS could be applied both in the analysis of already existing manipulation robots for full utilization of their resources in a specific technological process, or in the preliminary design stage for synthesis of systems with optimal characteristics.
CAMS could also be applied at the design stage of robot-automated work places and FMS elements, to select the optimal configuration.
Using CAMS for design and engineering one should model the future system with the aid of the computer and, in this way avoiding the need for experiments, should choose the optimal technological decision.
The CAMS software system is available in several versions fur mini-computers PDP 11–34, SM-4 and microcomputers PERQ and IBM — PC/XT.
The proposed software system is intended to bring together the designer’s intuition with powerful mathematical methods and algorithms.
