The aim of this programme of research was to develop a suitable Operating System to control a pneumatically powered industrial robot from a microcomputer. The result of this work has been to produce a satisfactory servo controller for operating an inexpensive, fully-programmable robot which has been successfully exploited in Industry. The functional modes of the Operating System include a means for teaching, editing and replaying any desired workcycle composed of spacial targets, palletising arrays, time-delay elements and a means for synchronising the robot with external events. The Operating System is sufficiently flexible that it has been recognised to have potential application in any machine requiring the storage and replay of a workcycle.
