  • Introduction of the training

    The module for robot programming by manual guidance enables fast and intuitive programming of new robot tasks without using traditional robot programming systems. With manual guidance, called kinesthetic teaching, the operator physically guides the robot through the desired robot configurations and movements in order to program a sequence of robot movements that lead to a successful task execution. Manual guidance can be used for the programming of point-to-point movements or whole movements (trajectories). The general overview of the approach and the required prerequisites are given. Hardware and software components of the module are presented, while instructions on using the graphical user interface are also given.
