Robotic Interaction Sketches
On behalf of BMW, MESO researched and developed the basis for a platform for interactive exhibits. One of the main components in the first stage of the project is the Real-Time Robotic Motion Library (RT/RML). This enables highly aesthetic sequences of movements to be implemented by ABB industrial robots in any kind of programming environment.
Industrial robots have traditionally been controlled by a fixed program which lets them work as efficiently as possible. The robot typically works self-sufficiently and is linked to the surrounding machinery via simple interfaces (sensors, light cabinets, contacts).
Interactive exhibits, however, have other requirements.
Some prototypical examples of RT/RML applications from the MESO laboratory are shown in this video.
