Project Title: Designing of a PC-based Robot Controller
This project is on designing of a PC-based Robot Controller.
A robot arm can be interfaced to a computer system using an I/O
interface card that allow reading the status of the robot and
sending commands to modify its state according to a defined
First the student will interface a robot to a PC using standard I/O
and develop a program in VB to read the robot status and to
assign commnads the the robot actuators.
Second the student will study a control function that allow
the robot to follow up a given trajectory while minimizing
some objective function like square errors.
The function will be implemented by programming and its
performance evaluated by varying the rate of change (frequency)
of input trajectory.
Finally the student will be requested to optimize his program
to allow for the shortest control cycle which is useful to
enable multi-axis control by using a single sequential program.
