Distributed T&P Control System Based on CAN Bus for R-CUBE


Article Preview

The designed and experimental process of the teaching and playback(T&P) control system for R-CUBE is narrated. The control system was connected by CAN bus and has a distributed structure. The design thought and basic work principles of the control system about R-CUBE that regards the C8051F040 as the core are introduced, the basic circuit diagram of the hardware system and the software design projects are also provided. The teaching and playback progress was executed as several modes, with the control of three operator model, the teaching and playback of motion for R-CUBE could be realized.
