Robotic Simulation and Control
Tom Baker & Bill Peterson
Advisor: Dr. W. N. Anakwa

Robots are playing an ever-increasing role in the manufacturing environment. The robot's usefulness is dependent upon our ability to control it. Computers can be incorporated into the robotic system to provide the necessary on-line control. Simulation software can be used to determine an allowable range of motion for the robot with respect to its working environment. Our project will encompass the graphic simulation and control of the Rhino XR2 robot. A host computer is used to control the robotic arm and communicate with a graphics display. The display will consist of a Texas Instrument TMS 34010 Graphics Card and will show the user the position of the robot as it moves. The graphics display will simultaneously show the same movements and position as the robotic arm.
