(EN) ENHANCEMENT OF HUMAN-MACHINE INTERFACE (HMI) FOR CONTROLLING A ROBOT
(FR) AMÉLIORATION D'INTERFACE HOMME-MACHINE (IHM) POUR COMMANDER UN ROBOT
Abstract
(EN) Provided are a method for providing an enhanced human-machine interface (HMI) to control a robot, and a device supporting the method. According to one embodiment of the present invention, a method includes:monitoring a manipulation input by a user for an operation of the robot on the enhanced HMI, which is enhanced from a proprietary HMI proprietary to the robot;generating a first program in a first program environment for the enhanced HMI in response to the monitored manipulation;retrieving action information relating to actions to be performed as part of the operation of the robot, wherein the actions are defined in a second program environment for the proprietary HMI;generating a second program in the second program environment corresponding to the first program by using the retrieved action information; andcontrolling the robot to perform the operation using the second program.
