Title: System for monitoring and control of the Baxter robot
Keywords: Baxter, Python, Software, WebCam
Abstract: This scientific report details how a software and hardware system can be created to allow the surveillance, access and control of a Baxter industrial robot from any location connected to the Internet. Baxter is being aimed at the nearly 270,000 small to midsize manufacturers, which have five hundred or fewer employees - companies of that size are unlikely to be able to invest hundreds of thousands of dollars into robots that require a redesign of their workspace and IT personnel to run them. Commonly used, the robot can handle many different industry tasks – co-packing and end-of-line packaging, pick and place operations, plastic injection, printed circuit board handling and many others. It’s important to noted, that the platform on which the control software works is Microsoft Windows. The programming language used to write the code for the system is Python 2.7. For monitoring a robot when executing a command, a high quality camera - AUSDOM AW615 1080p - is also used in the system.
