I'm new to Robotlab but not to electronics or programming. I've read all the forum entries and it appears as tho your the one to answer my question.
The project I'm developing is a pick and place machine for smt parts using a robot arm rather than an x-y-x table. I realize that the accuracy isn't as good as a table buit I think I have a solution.
The arm I'm using is a Lynxmotion with tweezers for a gripper and 1 or 2 cameras for final positioning.
The cad program I use exports a Pick and Place list with the X-Y co-ordinates of each part. The program will import this list and display each line on a 4x20 LCD. On command the arm will move to a part pickup station, use pattern recognition to pick the part, move to the designated co-ordinates, +- .050", where the on arm camera(s) will do pattern recognition for the final placement, place the part and return home and wait for the next part.
My question is, is Robotlab the right program to use? If not can you recommend a program to use?
Thanks for help
