VTT has developed a control system to support user ability to show robot work paths by hand-guiding, which can substantially cut the setting and programming time for the robot. The novelty of the control system is in the use of two force/torque sensors for recognising the pressure on the tool and the interaction force between the robot and the human operator. The new solutions significantly enhance the efficiency of productive operations and open up new opportunities for utilising robots.
