Task planning for welding applications

Bolmsjö, Gunnar LU and Nikoleris, Giorgos LU (1993) In Systems, Man and Cybernetics p.515-519
Abstract (Swedish)
Welding robots that use sensors to compensate for variations in their environment pose new requirements for programming systems and for controller architectures. Tracking sensors must be programmed with the geometry of the welds and the motions of the robot. The process monitoring system must be programmed with the required process tolerances and the type of weld. Finally, the controller must be programmed with the motion parameters, velocity and end-pose. Task planning for welding applications is the specification of the geometrical and the technological parameters that are necessary to the above subsystems. The architecture of the controller also must be process-related to allow the flow of planning information to the different... (More)
