A method and device for improving orientation and/or location accuracy of a programmable robot with respect to a target object. The method consists of calibrating the position of a terminal control frame associated with a robot end-effector which is coupled to a robot distal link. Separated reference positions external from the robot are identified, as to geometry and spatial data. This identification data is stored for later recall and comparison for use in determining a localized relative frame of reference. The robot end-effector is moved to a first r...
A method for calibrating the position of a terminal control frame of a robot end-effector such as a camera or gripping device which is coupled to a robot distal link having a robot distal frame and being subject to control of a computer data processing and storage means, said method comprising the steps of: (a) attaching pointing means having a pointing end to the robot distal link such that the pointing means is aligned parallel with a z-axis of the robot distal frame; (b) selecting a first reference point in a space removed from the robot but within an...
