Gamepad Control for Industrial Robots - New Ideas for the Improvement of Existing Control Devices

Maximilian Wagner, Dennis Avdic, Peter Heß

Abstract

In the scope of this work, a frequently used gaming device—the gamepad—is investigated as a control device for industrial robots in order to extract new ideas for the improvement of existing control devices. Thus, an approach for the integration of a gamepad control in a common industrial robot system is developed and implemented. The usability of the gamepad control is improved by adding a smartphone to the gamepad, which serves as a display to show information to the user. Finally, the developed gamepad control is compared with the operation via conventional control device.
