Abstract
The article presents the subject of construction of positioners cooperating with industrial robots used in control and measurement systems. Solutions of this type are used for positioning and orienting objects in relation to the measuring system, e.g. a vision system, during the measurements. The method for controlling an industrial robot via the popular Arduino UNO R3 development board based on the ATmega328 microcontroller is described. The first part of the article briefly describes industrial robots and what tasks they can be used for. Then, the article focuses on the specific type of Kawasaki robot and how it was possible to establish a stable connection coupling the robot logic, the ATmega328 microcontroller and the system of two stepper motors, as well as how the control logic was built. The summary shows the advantages of the solution described in this article and the prospects for further development of the idea.
