A system for the development of robot task plans and programs is introduced where graphics serves to illustrate motion constraints to the programmer. By examining the graphic animation and interfacing with robot control algorithms, it is possible to develop path programs that the robot can implement. This approach represents an interim commercially implementable phase prior to the availability of artificial intelligence-based task planning systems which will reduce the requirements for human intervention.
