Automate 2019 - In industrial robots, there is a trend toward lower-skill programming interfaces.

As Greg Smith, Process Engineer at Yaskawa said in this video, you shouldn’t need a manual to use a consumer electronic device such as a smartphone. The user experience should be intuitive, requiring no special skills. This view seems to be mirrored in the latest generation of industrial robot programming interfaces.

Making robots easier to program is a growing trend in industrial robotics. Yaskawa’s Smart Pendant is one of several new products in the industry designed to make basic robot programming capability accessible to lower-skilled workers.
