Programming and control
Going depper into kinematics and sensory science
Robotics is played out on three interdependent levels: (1) robots and technical equipment; (2) application development, control logic and programming; and (3) handling, use and operation. POMA Systems’ engineers and IT experts modify systems as required in each application situation. This primarily affects electrical engineering methods and procedures, IT issues, software design and concepts derived from this in higher programming languages.
Bespoke application solutions
Deviating from the norm often the rule
It is often the case in situations where applications are being tailored to a client’s specific needs that special functionalities are required that are rather atypical for robots. In such cases, customisations and add-ons to the hardware and software are required. This applies, for example, when the aim is to transfer to a robot the tactile capabilities and powers of the human arm. In order to regulate the robotic arm’s acceleration and its deployment of force realistically, the sensors and kinematics need to be modified, with forces and acceleration torques being measured at the point where their impetus is the greatest. For doing this special acceleration recorders and interface programming for power-controlled movement of the robotic arm are both essential.
