Abstract :
"Most industrial robots are still programmed using the typical teaching process,
through the use of the robot teach pendant. This is a tedious and time-consuming task that
requires some technical expertise, and hence new approaches to robot programming are
required. The paper aims to present a robotic system that allows users to instruct and program
a robot with a high-level of abstraction from the robot language. "(extract from abstract in Emerald)
