In the present day, robotics is becoming more and more prevalent in industry and in other fields due to the growing need for higher productivity and process optimization. “Smart systems” often include collaborative robots which are characterized by their ability to include human help into the process of work, significantly improving the flexibility and speed of work.
For proper demonstration of human-robot collaboration it is essential to choose both a suitable application and a collaborative robot. We decided on the ABB’s dual-arm collaborative robot IRB 14000 YuMi. Application was an assembly task of a linear manipulator with a single degree of freedom.
In this work we present the robotic cell of the YuMi robot along with the software platform in which we created the simulation. After clearly defining the sequences of the assembly, we describe in detail the process of developing a collaborative application in a virtual environment. Thus, after reading this thesis, every reader can develop a similar application without any specific prior knowledge.
