Background art



[0002] A robot is a machine, which is controlled by an external or internal control apparatus, thereby automatically completing a series of complex actions. In general, the actions completed by the robot are controlled by computer programs; the methods by which these computer programs are programmed may include but are not limited to the following three types:

1. Using the teach pendant programming method



[0003] This method uses function buttons on a teach pendant to drive each joint axis of the robot, completing the teaching programming of positions and functions according to sequential single-axis movements or multi-joint coordinated movement required by a job. This method is limited by operations on the teach pendant, which are complex; moreover, it is generally necessary to control multiple axes in a coordinated manner, increasing the complexity of programming.

2. The lead through teaching programming method



[0004] In this method, in general, an end effector of the robot is led by a person through the required positions; at the same time, a sensor detects coordinate values at each joint of the robot, and this data information if recorded by a control system; the control system of the robot will reproduce the path which has been taught. Taking into consideration the safety and operating ability of the person, this method is generally only suitable for small robots.

3. Offline programming



[0005] In this method, a user programs the robot in a simulated environment. The robot, the surrounding environment of the robot and all objects are mapped into the simulated environment. The user defines positions, paths and interaction with working objects in a virtual manner. The real robot then executes these instructions. When this method is used, the entire surrounding environment of the robot must be accurately mapped into the simulated environment, and this requires that the user have advanced programming skills.

Particular embodiments



[0023] As stated above, existing teaching programming techniques have disadvantages such as difficulty of operation, exacting requirements in terms of programming skills, and lack of suitability for all types of robot. In an embodiment of the present invention, a movable apparatus is used to simulate movement of an end effector of a robot, movement information of the movable apparatus is recorded, the recorded movement information is converted by coordinate transformation into movement information in a coordinate system of the robot, and the converted movement information is then used to program the robot. This has the advantages of ease of operation, and no restrictions in terms of robot types. Teaching programming is accomplished through simple coordinate system transformation, and there is no need for advanced programming skills.

[0024] The movable apparatus may comprise at least one signal receiver, which receives a signal of at least one signal transmitter, and movement information of the movable apparatus can be determined by means of the signal received by the signal receiver, for example: information such as position, attitude, path, speed and acceleration. With such a method of movement tracking, the entire teaching programming part is not easily affected by the arrangement of teaching programming tools, so the spatial flexibility of teaching programming is high.

[0025] Embodiments of the present invention are explained in detail below with reference to the accompanying drawings.

[0026] Fig. 1 is a structural schematic diagram of a robot teaching programming system provided in an embodiment of the present invention. As shown in fig. 1, the system 100 may comprise:

a movable apparatus 20, for imitating movement of an end effector of a robot 30;

a robot teaching programming apparatus 40, for recording information of movement of the movable apparatus 20 in a first coordinate system 101, referred to here as "first movement information"; and determining movement information of the movable apparatus 20 in a second coordinate system 102, referred to here as "second movement information", according to a correspondence relationship between the first coordinate system 101 and the second coordinate system 102, and the first movement information. The second coordinate system 102 is a coordinate system of the robot 30 in a working space, for example: it may be a world coordinate system, a pedestal coordinate system, a workpiece coordinate system, etc.; the robot 30 is then programmed according to the second movement information.



[0027] Here, the robot 30 may be a robot 30 which really exists, or a robot simulated by simulation software. As long as the coordinate system of the robot 30, i.e. the "second coordinate system" is fixed, teaching programming of the robot can be performed by means of the solution provided in an embodiment of the present invention.

[0028] The first movement information and the second movement information are both used for describing movement of the movable apparatus 20, the difference being that the first movement information describes movement of the movable apparatus 20 with reference to the first coordinate system 101, whereas the second movement information describes movement of the movable apparatus 20 with reference to the second coordinate system 102, i.e. the coordinate system of the robot 30. Based on the correspondence relationship between the first coordinate system 101 and the second coordinate system 102, the second movement information can be obtained from the first movement information, thereby realizing the description of movement of the movable apparatus 20 in the coordinate system of the robot 30, and the movable apparatus 20 is used to imitate movement of the robot 30, therefore teaching of movement of the robot 30 in the working space of the robot 30 is realized, and teaching programming of the robot 30 can thereby be realized according to the second movement information.

[0029] The curved lines in fig. 1 represent paths of movement of the movable apparatus 20. During movement of the movable apparatus 20, the robot teaching programming apparatus 40 may record position information of the movable apparatus 20, (X1,Y1,Z1) as shown in fig. 3, i.e. position coordinates of the movable apparatus 20 in the first coordinate system 101; (X2,Y2,Z2) are position coordinates of the movable apparatus 20 in the second coordinate system 102 after coordinate transformation. The robot teaching programming apparatus 40 may also record attitude information of the movable apparatus 20, RYP1 as shown in fig. 4, i.e. an attitude angle of the movable apparatus 20 in the first coordinate system 101; RYP2 is an attitude angle of the movable apparatus 20 in the second coordinate system 102 after coordinate transformation. In addition, the variation of the position of the movable apparatus 20 with time may be used to represent the path of the movable apparatus 20, and the robot teaching programming apparatus 40 may also record path information of the movable apparatus 20. In addition, speed information and acceleration information, etc. of the movable apparatus 20 may also be obtained.

[0030] As shown in fig. 5, in terms of functional implementation, the robot teaching programming apparatus 40 may comprise a recording module 401, for recording the movement information of the movable apparatus 20 in the first coordinate system 101, i.e. the first movement information; a conversion module 402, for converting the first movement information into the second movement information in the second coordinate system 102, i.e. movement information in the coordinate system of the robot 30, according to the correspondence relationship between the first coordinate system 101 and the second coordinate system 102; a programming module 403, for programming the robot 30 according to the second movement information obtained by conversion. In one optional embodiment, the movable apparatus 20 comprises at least one signal receiver 201; the recording module 401 determines and records the first movement information according to a signal of at least one signal transmitter 202 received by the at least one signal receiver 201, and the conversion module 402 may also determine the correspondence relationship between the first coordinate system 101 and the second coordinate system 102 according to a relative positional relationship between the at least one signal transmitter 202 and the robot 30.

[0031] As shown in fig. 6, in terms of hardware implementation, the robot teaching programming apparatus 40 may comprise at least one memory 404 for storing computer-readable code, and at least one processor 405, for calling the computer-readable code stored on the memory 404, to realize each function of the robot teaching programming apparatus 40. Examples are the functions of each module in fig. 5. Thus, in terms of implementation, each module shown in fig. 5 may be a computer program module, stored in the memory 404 as computer-readable code.

[0032] In addition, the modules shown in fig. 5 could also be various functional modules realized by combining hardware and software, or various functional modules realized by hardware alone. Control logic of each process involved in an access control method may be burned into field-programmable gate array (FPGA) chips or complex programmable logic devices (CPLD) etc. in advance, with these chips or devices executing the functions of each hardware module; the particular manner of implementation may be determined according to engineering practice.

[0033] When the robot teaching programming apparatus 40 is recording the movement information of the moveable apparatus 20, there are multiple optional manners of implementation. The case shown in fig. 1, in which at least one signal receiver 201 receives a signal of at least one signal transmitter 202, and the robot teaching programming apparatus 40 determines and records the first movement information according to the received signal, is taken as an example.

[0034] The robot teaching programming apparatus 40 may determine the correspondence relationship between the first coordinate system 101 and the second coordinate system 102 according to the relative positional relationship between the at least one signal transmitter 202 and the robot 30. Optionally, at least one transmitter 202 remains stationary as the movable apparatus 20 imitates the movement of the end effector of the robot 30. In this way, it is possible to obtain in advance a fixed coordinate system correspondence relationship before teaching programming.

[0035] At least one signal transmitter 202 may record position information of at least one signal receiver 201 at each moment, as shown in fig. 3, then calculate position information of the moveable apparatus 20 at each moment according to the position information of each signal receiver 201, and then transmit this to the robot teaching programming apparatus 40; the robot teaching programming apparatus 40 can then calculate speed information, acceleration information and path information etc. of the movable apparatus 20 according to the received position information of the movable apparatus 20 at each moment.

[0036] Alternatively, at least one signal transmitter 202 may record position information of at least one signal receiver 201 at each moment, and send this directly to the robot teaching programming apparatus 40 without further processing. The robot teaching programming apparatus 40 then further calculates position information, acceleration information, speed information and path information etc. of the movable apparatus 20 at each moment.

[0037] Alternatively, at least one signal transmitter 202 may record position information of at least one signal receiver 201 at each moment, as shown in fig. 4, and due to the fact that a positional relationship among the various signal receivers 201 is fixed and known in advance, at least one signal transmitter 202 can then calculate attitude information of the movable apparatus 20 at each moment according to the position information of each signal receiver 201, and then transmit this to the robot teaching programming apparatus 40; the robot teaching programming apparatus 40 can thus ascertain the attitude information of the movable apparatus 20 at each moment.

[0038] Alternatively, at least one signal transmitter 202 may record position information of at least one signal receiver 201 at each moment, and send this directly to the robot teaching programming apparatus 40. Based on the positional relationship, known in advance, among the various signal receivers 201 and the position information of each signal receiver 201 at each moment, the robot teaching programming apparatus 40 then calculates attitude information of the movable apparatus 20 at each moment.

[0039] Fig. 2 is a chart of a robot teaching programming method provided in an embodiment of the present invention. The method may be executed by the robot teaching programming apparatus 40. As Fig. 2 shows, the method may comprise the following steps:

S201: determining the correspondence relationship between a first coordinate system 101 and a second coordinate system 102.
As stated above, the robot teaching programming apparatus 40 may determine the correspondence relationship between the first coordinate system 101 and the second coordinate system 102 according to a relative positional relationship between at least one signal transmitter 202 and a robot 30.

S202: recording first movement information of a movable apparatus 20.
As stated above, the robot teaching programming apparatus 40 may acquire information from at least one signal transmitter 202 and determine the first movement information.

S203: performing coordinate transformation, and determining second movement information according to the first movement information.
The robot teaching programming apparatus 40 obtains the second movement information from the first movement information by conversion, according to the correspondence relationship between the first coordinate system 101 and the second coordinate system 102.

S204: programming the robot 30 according to the second movement information.



[0040] Having obtained movement information of the movable apparatus 20 in the coordinate system of the robot 30, the robot teaching programming apparatus 40 can subject the robot 30 to teaching programming according to the information.

[0041] For other optional embodiments of the method, reference may be made to the descriptions relating to the system 100 above; no further superfluous description is given here.

[0042] In addition, the embodiments of the present invention also provide a computer-readable medium, on which is stored a computer-readable instruction which, when executed by a processor, causes the processor to implement a function of the robot teaching programming apparatus 40 in an embodiment of the present invention. Examples of computer-readable media include floppy disks, hard disks, magneto-optical disks, optical disks (such as CD-ROM, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-ROM, DVD-RAM, DVD-RW, DVD+RW), magnetic tapes, non-volatile memory cards and ROM. Optionally, a computer-readable instruction may be downloaded from a server computer or a cloud via a communication network.

[0043] In addition, the embodiments of the present invention also provide a computer program product, which is tangibly stored on a computer-readable medium and comprises a computer-executable instruction which, when executed, causes at least one processor to implement a function of the robot teaching programming apparatus 40 in an embodiment of the present invention.

[0044] In summary, the embodiments of the present invention provide a robot teaching programming method, apparatus and system, as well as a computer-readable medium and a computer program product. The present invention has advantages such as ease of operation, high efficiency and low cost.

[0045] It must be explained that not all of the steps and modules in the flows and system structure diagrams above are necessary; certain steps or modules may be omitted according to actual requirements. The order in which steps are executed is not fixed, but may be adjusted as required. The system structures described in the embodiments above may be physical structures, and may also be logical structures, i.e. some modules might be realized by the same physical entity, or some modules might be realized by multiple physical entities, or realized jointly by certain components in multiple independent devices.
