Operating system Robot textual languages

The operating system is used to perform several functions like writing, editing, executing a program, etc. in the robot textual languages. It also helps to increase the performance of the system to a larger extent. For processing a robot language program, an operating system will require an interpreter or compiler. An interpreter is used to run every instruction of robot language program one by one, while a compiler is used to convert the instructions into the machine level method by passing the complete program. There are three different modes of operation available in the operating system such as:

  • Monitor mode
  • Edit mode
  • Run mode

Monitor mode:

The purpose of a monitor mode is to control the complete operating system. It is also known as a supervisory mode. This mode allows the users to carry out some important tasks like:

  • Defining the positions with the help of a teach pendant
  • Entering the sufficient speed for operating a robot
  • Storing of new programs
  • Moving the stored programs to robot controller memory
  • Bringing back the existing program for performing other tasks like edit and run

Edit mode:

In the edit mode, there is an instruction set for writing and editing the programs. This process can be done by three different methods such as:

  • Editing or deleting the instruction in existing program
  • Writing new series of instruction lines in a program
  • Adding of new lines in the program

Run mode:

The run mode is used to execute the sequence of program lines. This mode helps in checking the errors available on the program. These errors are corrected with the help of language debugging methods. For example: the points defined in the program may exceed the limits of moving the manipulator. At this time, an error message will be displayed on the screen. To correct this error, the program will be sent back to the edit mode for corrections.
