INDUSTRIAL ROBOT

World Robot Contests 2018---Industrial Robot


I. Overview

At present, the traditional industrial robot is separated from human at work, yetthe cooperative robot differs in its ability to collaborate with people in thesame working environment and accomplish tasks together. It boasts advantages of high security, high flexibility, and high precision, and it meets the needs forplug-and-play, simple operation, easy maintenance, and inexpensiveprice. It hasbeen widely used in many fields such as manufacturing, processing industry,service industry, medical industry, education, etc. It has greatly liberatedlow-end workforce, promoting humans to take more high-end jobs such asmanagement, technology, and R&D.


To implement the national program Made in China 2025, continue to promoteinnovation-driven development strategies, improvethe integration of roboticstechnology and Chinese manufacturing, promote innovation and application ofhuman-robot collaboration technology, deepen the integration of human androbot, and realize the integrated development of cooperative robot and otherindustries, the Organizing Committee of World Robot Contest 2018 will set up“World Robot Contest 2018-Industrial Robot” based on the actual production andapplication of cooperative robot, which will establish a professional platformfor promoting application and improving technology of industrial cooperativerobot.

(I) WRCC2018-Intelligent Equipment

1. BriefIntroduction

This eventfocuses its investigation on participating teams’ cooperative technologies inactual application of industrial manufacturing. The assembly work of mechanicalparts is cooperatively done by robotic arm and human beings, displaying thespeed and accuracy of the cooperative robotic arm, reflecting cooperative robotis gradually integrated with industrial manufacturing and thus the productionefficiency will be improved and manpower liberated.


2. Overview of the Rules

1) The participating teams need tosubmit tasks and solutions in text version. In solutions, model and number ofequipment used in the contest, number of players, and task procedures need tobe specified. If auxiliary tools are used, specifications and usage need to bestated.


2)Contestplatform: weight=25KG; load=5KG; DOF=6


3) Number (a)and type (b) of participating equipment: 1≤a≤3; 3≤b≤8
