Online programming with ArtiMinds RPS

Only one continuous software solution for all programming tasks

ArtiMinds RPS is a continuous software solution, usable in all phases of your robot-supported autoamtion project. Therefore you only need one single software instead of different programming and simulation tools. Switch seamlessly from offline to online mode and program and test directly on the real robot. Teach with the support of wizards and validate the movements of the industrial robot. The native robot source code is automatically generated by ArtiMinds RPS.

With ArtiMinds RPS you only need one software for online and offline programming. This applies not only to simple automation tasks, but also to sophisticated robot-supported processes up to integration into existing processes.

Online programmierung – Your benefits

Programming a robot can be very time-consuming and cost-intensive without the right supporting software. To cover all requirements when implementing a robot application, various tools and specialized programming expertise of the robot manufacturer software is necessary. Furthermore you have to take care of an exact coordination of the different departments and roles involved. ArtiMinds RPS offers a continuous approach to harmonize all phases, enabling you to seamlessly switch between online and offline programming using one single software.

Online programming with ArtiMinds RPS - teach and validate key poses of your robot

Online programming means teaching on the real robot. The close connection of teaching, programming and testing allows you to evaluate various solution approaches directly on the real robot in the shortest possible time. In addition, you can teach key poses in order to play them back directly into ArtiMinds RPS. Especially when programming demanding applications these possibilities and features are a great benefit, as the complexity of the processes requires a lot of testing and review.

Also, the use of grippers, image processing systems or force-torque sensors is significantly simplified, which in turn allows you to stay flexible in your hardware setup. In addition, ArtiMinds RPS includes numerous protocols and drivers from all well-known manufacturers. Therefore the robot software eliminates the significant initial effort required to integrate these components.

The analysis software ArtiMinds LAR allows you to analyze robot data during operation. This allows to optimized production cycles in terms of accuracy, speed and stability, or to compare different program versions with each other.
Further below you will find a step-by-step guide including video material how to program robots online. More information about offline programming with ArtiMinds RPS can be found here.

Step-by-Step: Online Programming

ArtiMinds RPS doesn’t require a CAD model of your robot cell or parts. Simply configure your robot in the robot configurator, add a few templates and start teaching with the real robot

  • Step 1: Choose your hardware

    Choose a robot and end-effector from the list of supported hardware components (see supported hardware >>). Configure the mountings in the robot configurator and automatically test network connectivity.

  • Step 2: Drag & Drop

    Watch the short preview videos and drag & drop a template into your RPS program.

  • Step 3: Teach with wizards

    Start the wizard of the template by a double-click and follow the graphical step-by-step instructions what to teach. Only a few teach points are required.

  • Step 4: Simulate and verify robot motions

    Click simulate to compute all motions and add transfer motions automatically. Inspect the motions in 3D and check for collisions automatically.

  • Step 5: Generate robot code

    RPS will automatically generate robot code, copy it to the robot and provide debug tools to run it. The robot code runs on the standard robot controller – no extra hardware is required during production.

  • Step 6: Analyze and revise

    Connect to the robot to analyze live data about the robot and end-effector motions. Quickly revise the robot program or adapt low-level parameters as an expert – ArtiMinds RPS is not a black box.
