A programming technique for multifunctional use of industrial robots

Balkan, T
In this study, a software is developed in order to use an industrial robot, specifically an are welding robot, as a palletizing robot by using programming codes of a FANUC ARC Mate Sr. on a FANUC R-G2 controller environment. The software performs all standard palletizing options of a material handling robot in the same category without requirement of any optional built-in software. In addition, multiplication and division can be performed without any optional software for these functions, by using standard addition and subtraction software. Thus, with the algorithm of the developed software, an industrial robot for a certain application may be used for palletizing without any extra cost for optional software.


A Modular Real-Time Fieldbus Architecture for Mobile Robotic Platforms
Saranlı, Uluç; Oeztuerk, M. Cihan (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-03-01)
The design and construction of complex and reconfigurable embedded systems such as small autonomous mobile robots is a challenging task that involves the selection, interfacing, and programming of a large number of sensors and actuators. Facilitating this tedious process requires modularity and extensibility both in hardware and software components. In this paper, we introduce the universal robot bus (URB), a real-time fieldbus architecture that facilitates rapid integration of heterogeneous sensor and actu...
A New Hardware-in-the-Loop Simulator for CNC Machine Applications
USENMEZ, S.; MUTLU, B. R.; Yaman, Ulaş; KILIÇ, ERGİN; Dölen, Melik; Koku, Ahmet Buğra (2013-03-01)
This study focuses on an integrated software and hardware platform that is capable of performing (real-time/nonreal- time) hardware-in-the-loop simulation of dynamic systems, including electrical machinery, CNC machine tools. In this approach, once the dynamics of the plant to be controlled is defined via C++ language, the resulting code is cross-compiled automatically on a PC. Executable files along with the necessary drivers are downloaded onto the composite hardware platform that consists of a Field Prog...
A behavior based layered, hybrid, control architecture for robot/sensor networks
Akin, Berkant; Erkmen, Aydan Müşerref; Erkmen, İsmet (2006-05-19)
This work focuses on the design and implementation of a behavior based, layered, cooperative control of robots in a sensor network, hybrid in combining subsumption and motor schema layers. Behaviors at different level of resolution are not only coordinated by the motor schema layers but also through units called "evaluators" which fuses state and activity of behaviors according to priorities and cross-couplings in runtime. Concurrent, sequential, asynchronous multi-robot task allocation is based on "market ...
A hypercomputational approach to the agent causation theory of free will
Mersin, Serhan; Sayan, Erdinç; Department of Cognitive Sciences (2006)
Hypercomputation, which is the general concept embracing all machinery capable of carrying out more tasks than Turing Machines and beyond the Turing Limit, has implications for various fields including mathematics, physics, computer science and philosophy. Regarding its philosophical aspects, it is necessary to reveal the position of hypercomputation relative to the classical computational theory of mind in order to clarify and broaden the scope of hypercomputation so that it encompasses some phenomena whic...
Software development for man-machine interface for an industrial robot
Cengiz, Mahir Cihan; Kaftanoğlu, Bilgin; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2003)
In this study, a robotic software, which controls the robot, is developed. The robot considered is a six degree of freedom robot and it is designed and manufactured in METU. User can send the robot anywhere in space within its workspace, in any orientation. Forward and inverse kinamatics can be executed according to the needs. Simulation framework is embedded into the software for the 3D visualisation of the robot. Any movements can be simulated on the screen. Software also generates the path for the given ...
