Conference paper


At the Institute of Production Machines, Systems and Robotics at Brno University of Technology there was mathematical model performed and after that the possibility of economical run-up and run-out of kinetic functions of industrial robots was tested. The results of experiments demonstrated validity of mathematical model and so they have shown one of possibilities of environmental operation by industrial robots. In case of multiple practical applications significant energetic savings can be found.
