Abstract

ROPSE, is a friendly unified system for both programming and robot guiding assistance. It constitutes the user interface in the industrial version of ACRO modular robots. ROPSE, implemented in Pascal on PC-AT micro computer, realizes full driving of the operator by interactive graphical means based on the tree-structured rolling menus principle and accessible by a logical mouse. Actions are selected on the screen for actual robot driving or easy and fast robot off-line programming. The system offers a set of complementary debuggIng tools: off-line graphical simulation, step-by-step robot on-line driving, and a teaching by showing module that proposes unconventional solutions.
