Abstract

Robot programming can be a tedious task, especially in industrial environments, where different types of robots are required and in flexible automation lines, where robots need to be frequently reconfigured. There are several shortcomings to be solved in this regard. The main issue being time efficiency. This paper presents a novel solution proposed for robot programming, a mobile application, called Uii Mobile, meant to introduce the smartphone on the shop floor, while facilitating robot programming for operators with basic technical knowledge. The use of Uii Mobile's intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) reduces the time a worker allocates for learning different programming languages. Uii Mobile also enables faster reconfiguration of robots for small, flexible tasks, such as pick and place. Nonetheless a user study using the System Usability Scale (SUS) rates Uii Mobile with a score of 75.38/100 which makes it an above average system, regarding its usability.
