This report aims to provide an understanding of the different ways in which a specific robot, Kawada Dual Arm Industrial Robot (Nextage Robot), can be implemented to do a set of particular task in industries and also describes about the ways in which the robot can be controlled in real time. It will also go through the advantages and disadvantages of the current planning and control methods of the robot. The collaborative robots available for current industrial applications have certain limitations, which deter industries from implementing them for actual large-scale industrial applications. For instance, one such limitation is the decision-making skillsets of the robot. With these limitations in mind, the report will highlight some of the possible ways by which the robot implementation can be improved. The proposed improvement in the architecture of the robot is achieved by creating a Graphical User Interface that will aid in creating motion plans, perform tasks, perform functions, aid in monitoring of the robot and also integrate all the functionalities and support features of the robot into a single Interface thus enabling the robot to be easily used by industries. The report will also describe the development process of the Graphical User Interface. After which, it will also suggest some future works in this area of work.
