The paper describes the development of the special industrial multi-axis anthropomorphic angular robots, of ALR type their design, computer control and the intelligence. Human interaction and the robot control versus management control ( the management factory control) are also addressed.
At the institute of production machines and the systems (before department of production machines and industrial robots) of the technical university, faculty of mechanical engineering in Brno, the development takes place of the special robots based on the series of the Cartesian portal type robots PRKM, the Cartesian bridge type robots PRM and multi-axis robots type robots type ALR. The robots ALR type have 6 DOFs with rotational type of joints, where robots ALR-1 and ALR-2 are of modular unit build design. Robots ALR-3 and ALR-4 have the simple self balancing systems of the orientation mechanism.
