Remote Control Of Industrial Robots
The module offers a method to control a general industrial robot remotely. This module offers a robot controlling method through IoT by using an information server. The interface takes input from the robot operator and the operator is able to program or move robots remotely.
The module is used to showcase how an interface can be connected to robots and enable remote control. Two interfaces are created, the first one is running in python which has advance control function, the second one is running in Node-red which allows robot operator to control it on mobile device.
The interface connects to the server and is able to read and write data in the server.
Inputs and outputs
Inputs: The module gets input from the robot operator on where the robot will move and with what speed.
Outputs: The robot will execute the movements remotely as operator inputted.
Formats and standards
Formats: OPC UA standard, KUKA RSI, KUKAVARPROXY-OpenShowVar
