The industrial robot arms became more and more usual. These robots can perform many tasks safely, which may be harmful or heavy for humans. Robots fit for that type of extremely precision work, what is too boring for human beings. These devices often used in welding, painting, packaging, assembly, pick and place, etc.
The Field-Programmable Gate Array is an integrated circuit designed to be configured by the customer or designer after manufacturing. These devices gained a foothold in many application areas, since their introduction in the early ’80-s, for example in the signal processing, in space and military applications, in ASIC (Application-Specific Integrated Circuit) prototyping, in medical image-processing, in cryptography, in hardware emulations and many other areas, where the multi-parallelization can benefits.
In my B.Sc. thesis, I would like to analyze the co-operation of FPGA-s and the National Instruments LabVIEW software package, in the robotics area. After the theoretical overview of the used technologies and devices including the sensor module, the communication interface and the test application will be presented. The reader can also meet the opportunities of moving trajectories, and applications what can be perform with the robotic arm used during the working process.
