Remote control of industrial robot systems using cognitive info communication
The robotization of small and medium sized companies put new challenges on the support and knowledge transfer. To be able to fulfil their requirements to instant support of their industrial robot systems, remote solutions are needed. However, remote control of a complex industrial robot system, put challenges onto the communication between the remote operator and the industrial robot system due to the fact that there are numerous states and data to be instantly transferred to the operator. This paper is intended to show one important industrial aspect of cognitive info communication. It deals with remote control of industrial robot systems by using cognitive info communication between the remote operator and the industrial robot system. The remote operator system utilizes the combination of sound and video in addition to animation using the VirCa software. The system is implemented as on a standard PC to remote operate a seven axes NACHI MR20 robot. Experimental results show that sound in combination of video, represents an efficient approach to communicate the complex state of an industrial robot system to a remote operator.
