Description: Much work has been published in the area of design of laboratory exercises and facilities to support teaching robotics and automation. New opportunities are becoming available, however, to allow laboratory facilities that are portable, have applications to a wide range of subjects, and are inexpensive. A large software manufacturer has recently entered the robotics software arena with a unique approach. They are supporting small hobby class robots as well as larger industrial units. This provides an opportunity to build small robot models that may easily be scaled to large industrial systems. This paper describes the construction of small 6 axis robot manipulators and the development of lecture and laboratory components to capitalize on them. Materials were developed in the areas of kinematics, dynamics, control and interfacing with work cells, integration with industrial controls, and programming. Development of industrial scale systems using the same software architecture is also addressed.
