Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this course, students will be able to use their programming skills to make system-specific scripting languages usable. Based on the example of the collaborative and non-collaborative industrial robots used, students will learn how to factor the physical hardware limitations into the implementation. In addition, they will be aware of the need to comply with safety-relevant legal requirements when using industrial robots.
 
Students will be able to independently develop solutions for common robot applications in industrial manufacturing.
 
In addition to the professional qualifications in the (interdisciplinary) project team, they will also gather experience in assuming professional and organizational responsibility.

Module content:
During this course, students will cover how to program six-axis collaborative industrial robots. The goal is the development of plugins using a system-dependent script language.
 
First Part (lectures, practical exercises):
- Safety aspects when using industrial robots
- Dealing with robot hardware
- System dependent script language (with UR as an example)
- Development of system-specific plug-ins UR CAPS (using UR as an example)
Second Part (project):
Development of plug-ins for integration into the control software of the robots to solve common industrial problems (e.g. assembly processes, Pick&Place)
