An industrial robot including its controller, was put at HTL Mödling’s disposal. Since the topic of robotics is gaining more and more attention, the school is planning to implement practices which focus on the programming of robotic systems and the interaction with peripheral hardware.
The robot IRB1200 by ABB is planned to be installed in a robotic cell, that is equipped with state-of-the-art safety and pneumatic components. Furthermore, the system should be flexible for adding extensions such as sensors, motors, etc. Thus, exercises can easily be practiced on the robot by future classes.
