Design and Implementation of an Intelligent Robotic Manipulator using LabVIEW for Industrial Applications

Rajinder Tiwari

Abstract


The robotic manipulator plays a dominant role in the domain of process industries based applications such as pick and drop, quality based sorting, etc. With the advent of these intelligent systems, the overall performance has been grown at a quite fast rate. This system has been mostly developed with the help of various hardware and software modules with the help of graphical coding language i.e. LabVIEW by National Instruments or MatLAB by Mathworks. This virtual intelligent system basically consists of a robotic manipulator, vision based systems, AI based processors i.e. a microcontroller, conveyor belts, etc. In this system, the degree of freedom (DOF) i.e. the movement of the manipulator is quite important which depends upon the nature of the application. For this intelligent system, various algorithms based approaches are implemented so as to execute the task i.e. image processing, coordinate determination, movement of the end effectors using various servo as well as DC motors, etc. In this present work, author has put forward a high performance automated intelligent system that provides a precise output with desired level of accuracy. With such characteristics, this virtual intelligent system can be utilized in various industrial applications where the quality is expected at a high rate with other dominant parameters. The simulation work of the system has been carried out with LabVIEW 2015 edition along with other hardware modules with desired results.
