A Knowledge Based Approach to User Support for Robot Programming

Elin Anna Topp, Jacek Malec


We summarize our successful efforts to support intuitive programming of industrial robotic assembly tasks with a knowledge based approach to the representation of skills. These skills can be specified, re-used, refined and transferred between robots with the help of a multimodal interface combined with kinesthetic teaching. We argue that while it is certainly possible and suitable to have robots acquire skills or skill primitives through various learning methods, it is still crucial to provide explicit knowledge and semantics available to them.
