Logical Structures for Collision Avoidance in Assembly with Robots

  • A. Rovetta


This paper deals with the realization of a logical structure for the use of robots in assembly.

The development of algorithms of obstacle avoidance, by means. of analysis of trajectories, is performed.

The strategy for the obstacles avoidance is the first step in the construction of a supervisory structure for controlling the physical interactions between the environment and the robot.
