Industrially applicable robot technologies have so far been available only to a small extent for teaching and educational purposes. Instead, toy-like robots have been used for reasons of cost and simplicity of use/interfacing. Now, however, more modular and scalable SME-suitable parallel robot solutions (SME= small and medium-sized enterprise) - such as the Desktop "Plug-and-Produce" Robot - are creating new opportunities for mechanical design, feedback control, software interfaces and sophisticated software tools for robot programming:
- New mechatronic key components can be inexpensively fabricated and down-sized for classroom use.
- Improved modularity allows students to assemble robots that still retain their industrially relevant dynamics and kinematic properties.
- Software interfaces supporting Microsoft Robotics Studio.
- 3D graphics software tools supporting Plug-and-Play paradigm.
- Open-source software supporting individual 3D graphics simulation and further control developments
