This paper considers programming and control of skill-based robots. Robot skills are used to integrate and synchronize robot actions and sensor data in a consistent way. Skill-based approach provides a framework for configurable robot systems, enabling quick setups and start-ups of applications. In the paper we will introduce skill programming and skill control concepts in more detail and how they relate to usage of models and sensors. We will also give a practical example for programming and implementing skills for a grinding application.
