Paper Abstract

In this paper, a new design of an environment for simulation and animation of sensor-based robots is presented. As sensor technology advances, increasing numbers of robots are equipped with various types of sophisticated sensors. The main goal of creating the visualization environment is to aid the off-line programming capability of sensor- based robots. The software system will help the users visualize the motion and reaction of the sensor-based robot under their control program, thereby increasing the efficiency of program development and reliability of the control program, ensuring the safety of robot operation, and reducing the cost of new software development. Most of the conventional computer-graphics-based robot simulation and animation software packages lack robot sensing simulation capabilities. Our system is designed to overcome this deficiency.
