I think all of you agree with me that compared to other applications (web pages, desktop applications, etc.) errors in a robot code are crucial.
So, I have a question: how do you test your code? I am not talking about the simulated paths for a robot. Please, don't say that a manual testing is the only way Because it is time consuming and for me who works in the R&D department code changes rapidly.
For the other programmable applications you can build pipelines and test your code changes in the cloud (CI/CD).
Is it possible to do the same thing for industrial robots?
As I understand, the problem is to build a robot code in the cloud because of the unknown compiler and specific functions.
But maybe one of you used a real robot for that?
I tried to write tests for my functions in the edge cases, but on a real robot it is still time consuming.
So, in summary, my question is: what is the best way to test the code changes for industrial robots?
