CORBA distributed robotic system: A case study using a motoman 6-DOF arm manipulator Chapter in Scopus uri icon


  • We present a remote operated robot application based on a standard CORBA distributed system to control a MOTOMAN 6-DOF arm manipulator. The robot is based on XRC2001 robot controller. Current approach could be extented to other Yaskawa controllers (e.g. ERC, ERCII, MRC, MRCII) without major changes. The main idea is to define a set of generic IDL interfaces that can be used to integrate commercial proprietary libraries hiding the intricate of low level components. The challenge is to create a remote client-server application which facilitates the integration of one or several arm manipulators based on mentioned controllers independently from computer system or different platforms. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2005.
