With robots ranging in weight from 2 to 300 kg detailed on this Web site, Kawasaki Robotics (Wixom, MI) offers a range of related products including robots, controllers, traversing units, and material-fabrication systems. To program these robots, the company offers the AS robot programming language that allows developers to enter robot control commands, numerical calculations, conditional jump step divergence, interrupt I/O, and program creation on a PC. Multitasking allows parallel programs to run simultaneously while the robot is moving. Because the AS language is interpreted, the need for program compilation is eliminated, thereby providing developers with feedback on programming errors. For example, automatic palletizing is possible without adding special software by teaching three initial points and defining stack parameters.
