In a few weeks I will be starting on a mission as a teacher in robotics. It's a total of five groups of Automation Engineering students who each gets to spend two full days with me and a couple of DX-200's.
The robots are fairly small and are enclosed in plexiglass cubes (for safety).
I will begin with some theory and then let them jog and do some minor programming.
Please feel free to suggest different kinds of exercises that I can give them, or if there are somethings that I should emphasize.
(Bare in mind that each class only get two days worth of education with me. The goal is only to give them an introduction to robotics and an understanding of it. And since they have Motoman robots at their disposal -some Motoman-specific knowledge.)
This far I have come up with the following:
*Setup a TCP for a pointy tool (the robots are equipped with grippers that can grip the "pointy tools")
*Setup a user coordinate on a plane that is sloped and rotated in relation to base coordinate
*Perform a circular movement using MOVC
*Follow a path with both straight and curved lines
*Do a slalom run (move a pen or something that is being held by the gripper through an obstacle course)
*Pick up small building blocks, stack them and then put them back
*Something that involves P-Shift (please give me suggestions)
