“Accurate manual guided robot programming and trajectory correction using 3D vision by laser triangulation”

Autorea: A. Tellaeche. R. Arana, M.A. Pérez, I. Maurtua Data2012

Normal utilization of robot manipulators of anthropomorphic type does not reach beyond reiteration of preprogrammed trajectories. 

While static robot programs may be sufficient for high volume manufacturers, they are not adequate in one-off or small-batch manufacturing. The objective of the research presented in this paper is to facilitate robot programming by combining hand guided end-effector rough movement planning and 3D visual servoing based accurate trajectory following.
