Robot programming involves designing the controller that governs robot behavior. Because of the growing complexity of robotics, modeling and simulation are becoming crucial to understanding how the controller interacts with the robot’s environmental perception, mobility, and interaction. Modeling and simulation help engineers refine the system design and eliminate errors before developing hardware prototypes.
An ideal robot programming process includes:
- Modeling perception and mobility systems
- Using simulation to design and validate your control algorithms
- Generating C code from your simulation model
