Modeling and control of an industrial robot is a student project in the CDIO-course TSRT10 at ISY, Linköping University. The project is a collaboration with ABB Robotics and the purpose is to develop a control system for the robot to move from a point A to a point B, and also to be able to folow a straight line.

To do this, a kinematic- and dynamic model is developed and the control system is implemented in Matlab which is then conected to Labview to control the physical robot.

The robot is a result from a previus project course by Mechanical Engineering students. If this control project get a good outcome, the plan is to start another project next year, 2012, to develop a moving platform to the robot.
