Monitoring robot actions for error detection and recovery

  title={Monitoring robot actions for error detection and recovery},
  author={Maria Gini and Roberta K. Smith},
Reliability is a serious problem in computer Controlled robot systems. Although robots serve successfully in relatively simple applications such as painting and spot welding, their potential in areas such as automated assembly is hampered by programming problems. A program for assembling parts may be logically correct. execute correctly on a simulator, and even execute correctly on a robot most of the time, yet still fail unexpectedly in the face of real world uncertainties. Recovery from such… CONTINUE READING
