The Collaborative Robots, Advanced Vision Technologies & A.I. Conference is a 2 day conference will you will learn about the latest emerging trends in the collaborative robotics, vision, and AI application spaces. A number of experts in the field will be speaking, and also there is an exhibition with leading suppliers and solution providers as well.
ROS-Industrial and SwRI software senior developer, Jorge Nicho, will be presenting on recent development round Visual Programming of robotic applications leveraging open-source tools in a hardware agnostic way.

Leveraging Open-Source Tools to Create Visual Programming Capabilities for Robots
This presentation describes a new simplified robot programming method based on visual demonstration of desired motion paths. This method consist of having an operator holds a pencil-shaped pointing tool that is equipped with visual markers that allow a visual system to track its location. The location information along with a graphical interface allow the operator to teach desired robot trajectories that can be executed to perform a variety of tasks. The goal of this project was to investigate the tools, feedback and workflow that can facilitate programming methods that remove the difficulties of traditional robot teaching methods that required many hours of tedious waypoint programming and lack flexibility.
