    Robotic arc welding and its dependence on sensory feed-back control for successful application is discussed. Problems unique to arc weld sensing are identified and sensor requirements are categorized as a function of welding design requirements, joint imperfections, weld shape deviations, and process characteristics. The two most prevalent approaches of weld sensing, i.e., optical and through-the ... View full abstract»

    This paper examines robotic vision and its relation to computer vision. The role of vision as a robotic sensory process is discussed and compared with the other robotic sensory processes. Some fundamentals of machine vision processing are discussed for the binary, gray-scale, and three-dimensional cases. The paper stresses the need for three-dimensional vision processing for robotic tasks. Archite... View full abstract»

    This paper reviews the current status of industrial robots and discusses their future from the viewpoint of the basic key functions which will be required for future intelligent applications. Ten basic key functions are introduced as examples which satisfy the following four conditions: 1) low price, 2) high performance, 3) high reliability, and 4) simplicity. All of these functions are necessary ... View full abstract»

    This paper describes an electrical control method of absorbing arm vibrations of industrial robots. Arm vibration problems are divided into two categories: resonance vibration phenomenon depending on actuator velocity and transient oscillations caused by acceleration change of actuators. Because resonance frequency of an industrial robot changes more than double due to the arm posture, mechanical ... View full abstract»

    To facilitate expedient communication with robots, a very high-level hierarchical robot command language (Hirob) has been designed and implemented. Hirob uses the full and comprehensive syntax of the English imperative, allowing users to control a robot without the need of learning an esoteric programming language. A Parser/Scanner/Recognizer (PSR) performs a lexical analysis of a Hirob command st... View full abstract»
