Use case 8: Quick programming and calibration by kinesthetic teaching
Traditional systems for robot programming are still quite complex and rely on user knowledge about robotics. End-users therefore often cannot program their robots without the help of system integrators, which prolongs the programming time and increases the price of robot applications.
In this demonstrator, we address these challenges by providing a software and hardware framework that include both front-end and back-end solutions to integrate programming by demonstration paradigm based on kinesthetic teaching into an effective system for programming of robot assembly tasks. Programming by demonstration based on kinesthetic teaching can be implemented on robots that allow users to guide them by hand through the desired movements and robot configurations.
