There is a great deal to be done in machine tool and robot programming research. The major problems include the slowness of the introduction of machine controllers, which have similar operating system and interfacing capabilities as the current 16 bit and 32 bit microcomputers, and the lack of intelligent, high-level standard languages, providing access not only at a high level, but also at the robot system programming level. The introduced and illustrated “MARTI” off-line robot program generator, under development by the author, attempts to provide software in this area.
