Paint Spraying Robot and Peripheral Plant
The integration of a spray robot system and its peripheral equipment into
the overall control system for the spraying plant.
An extra computer was installed and serially connected into the existing
computer network on the
This computer was used to control the robot peripherals and to regulate the
supply of workpieces to the robot.
Design of software modules for operating a robot interface and for controlling
the feeding arrangement in the spraying plant.
The modules were written in Z-80 assembler run on a graph interpreter.
The software was structured on a "state-action" basis.
I proposed the idea of automatic recovery on process failure for this
application, thus reducing system downtime.
