Working Paper

Currently, it is difficult for a non-programmer to generate a complex sensor-based robotic program. Most robot programming methods either generate only very simple programs or are such that they are only useful to programmers. This paper presents an interactive teach system that will allow non-programmers to create a program for a six degree of freedom mechanical robot. In addition to conventional guiding capabilities, the teach system will allow the user to create complex programs containing sensor-based moves (move until touch), loops, and branches.
