The goal of this project is to design control and simulation software for an existing industrial robot. The robot consists of a fixed metal frame fitted with stepper motors that control the position of a cutting tool in three dimensions, with the range of movement in one dimension being substantially less than the other two. Software is required to control the robot via a PC serial port. Also, in order to facilitate further development without potential damage to tools or the robot (or students) we want a simulator with the same software interface as the control software, that will simulate the robot behaviour and display the precise position of the cutting tool at all times.
