REMOTE ROBOT CONTROL AND HIGH AVAILABILITY

Abstract

Nowadays production flows are modular, each module in the enterprise being specialized and used to achieve a particular task. In many cases the modules are connected and materials are sequentially processed in each module resulting a final, unique product or assembly. One typical such production module is a flexible cell/system using multiple robots. In this structure, providing continuous service for applications is a key component of a successful robotized implementing of manufacturing. High availability (HA) is one of the components contributing to continuous service provision for applications, by masking or eliminating both planned and unplanned systems and application downtime. A high availability solution in robotized manufacturing provides automated failure detection, diagnosis, application recovery, and node (robot controller) re integration. The paper describes a platform which is a software product designed to control and supervise multiple robot-vision controllers using remote connections with a number of Adept Technology V+ controllers configured to use a high availability implementation, either located in a local network or via Internet.
