Control app simplifies robot programming

21 January 2018

With the aim of creating a more intuitive, easier and faster way to control industrial robots, Comau has introduced PickAPP, an Android application to perform pick-and-place operations.

Traditionally, robot programmers have used a teach pendant device (robot remote control) to interact with the robot. The app simplifies this operation.

PickAPP is an Android application which allows anyone familiar with smartphones to move a robot and create a pick-and-place process by without having to learn robotic programming language. The user moves the robot manually by pulling and pushing robot joints, or using the interface in a similar way that is used for toy cars or drones. Additional configurations, like the type of movement and the actions related to a gripper, can be easily added.

Initially PickAPP is available for Comau low payload robots and will soon be implemented for the entire Comau robot family.
