Abstract

In this paper we contribute to the research on facilitating industrial robot programming by presenting a concept for intuitive drag and drop like programming of pick and place tasks with Augmented Reality (AR). We propose a service-oriented architecture to achieve easy exchangeability of components and scalability with respect to AR devices and robot workplaces. Our implementation uses a HoloLens and a UR5 robot, which are integrated into a framework of RESTful web services. The user can drag recognized objects and drop them at a desired position to initiate a pick and place task. Although the positioning accuracy is unsatisfactory yet, our implemented prototype achieves most of the desired advantages to proof the concept.
