Abstract: 

This paper presents a Graphical User Interface (GUI) and simulator, which is designed for a cable suspended robot (ICaSbot), in Lab VIEW environment. This interface is designed to be used for training users in a virtual environment and also controlling the cable robot in an on-line manner. The proposed GUI consists of kinematics, dynamics and on-line control sections. All the mentioned sections are involved in the simulator of the robot employed to display the motion of the end-effector in a virtual environment. Using the proposed GUI, the user is able to exert the desired commands and study the end-effector motion and all of its kinematics and kinetics output in a virtual environment. Afterward, this motion can be applied to the real robot in the part called "hardware control", while six different control methodologies can be selected. The controlling commands, such as driving the motors and monitoring the actual data received from the sensors, can be managed in this part of the GUI. The efficiency and applicability of the designed GUI are proved by conducting some ISO and experimental tests on the cable robot of IUST, called ICaSbot, and comparing the results with simulation, including repeatability and accuracy tests and tracking a predefined trajectory.
