Accelerometer-Based Control of an Industrial Roboti c Arm

Abstract
 Most of mechanical robots are still modified utilizing the run of the mill showing procedure, through the utilization of the robot educate pendant. In this paper is proposed an accelerometer-based framework to control a modern robot utilizing two low - cost and little 3-pivot remote accelerometers. These accelerometers are appended to the human arms, catching its conduct (signals what's more, stances). An Artificial Neural Network (ANN) t drizzled with a back-spread calculation was utilized to recognize arm motions and stances, which then will be utilized as input in the control of the robot. The point is that the robot starts the development practically in the meantime as the client begins to perform a signal or stance (low reaction time). The outcomes demonstrate that the framework permits the control of a mechanical robot in an instinctive way. Then again, the accomplished acknowledgment rate of motions and stances (92%) ought to be enhanced in future, keeping the trade off with the framework reaction time (160 milliseconds). At last, the after effects of a few tests performed with a modern robot are exhibited and talked about. 

 
 
Framework Description
The showing cell  is made out of an modern robot MOTOMAN HP6 furnished with the NX100 controller, two 3-pivot remote accelerometers to capture human hand practices, and a PC running the application that deals with the cell. The 3-pivot accelerometers (ADXL330, Analog Devices) are physically appraised to gauge increasing speeds over a scope of at any rate +/ - 3g, with an affectability of 300 mV/g and affectability exactness of 10%. The accelerometers convey mind the PC by means of Bluetooth remote connection, reporting back information at 100 Hz B.
Approach
The 3-pivot accelerometer appended to the right arm is utilized to perceive signals (element arm positions) and postures (static arm positions), though the accelerometer attached to the left arm perceives the stances used to activate and deactivate the framework (just two stances). In practice, the client ought to make a motion with the right arm and at the same time utilize the left arm to enact or deactivate the framework. Whenever initiated, the framework gains information from the accelerometer appended to the right arm, perceives the motion or stance and begins the robot development. Performing a particular stance with the left arm, the robot stops. In the event that the client never stops the robot, the robot proceeds with the development up to the furthest reaches of its field of operation. An ANN framework prepared with a back-spread calculation was utilized to perceive motions and postures. The ANN framework has as information the movement information (removed from the accelerometer connected to the right arm) and as out put the perceived motions and stances. Because of the developing interest for characteristic Human Machine Interfaces and robot natural programming stages, a automated framework that permits clients to control an industrial robot utilizing arm signals and stances was proposed. Two 3 - pivot accelerometers were chosen to be the info gadgets of this framework, catching the human arms practices. At the point when contrasted and other regular info gadgets, especially the show pendant, this methodology utilizing accelerometers is more natural and simple to work, other than offering the possibility to control a robot by remote means. Utilizing this system, a non- master robot software engineer can control a robot rapidly what's more, in a regular way. The low value and short set-up time are other points of interest of the framework. All things considered, the reliability of the framework is an imperative impediment to consider. The ANN's appeared to be a decent decision to perceive signals and stances, exhibiting a normal of 92% of
effectively perceived motions and stances. The system reaction time (160 milliseconds) is another important component. Future work will expand upon the change of the normal of accurately perceived signals. One approach may be the execution of a gyrator into the framework, so as to independent the speeding up because of gravity from the inertial increasing speed. The utilization of more accelerometers connected to the arms is another probability.
