There are many situations in which a computer simulation with a graphic display can be very useful in the design of a robotic system. First of all, when a robot is planned for an industrial application, there are many commercially available arms that can be selected. A graphics-based simulation would allow the manufacturing engineer to evaluate alternative choices quickly and easily. The engineer can also use such a simulation tool to design interactively the workcell in which the robot operates and integrate the robot with other systems, such as part feeders and conveyors with which it must ...
