It is no secret that robots have become a common staple of the factory floor. With the ability to attach nearly unlimited custom grippers, and collaborative robots that don’t require safety guarding, robots are finding their way into more and more applications every year. Being able to program a robot to make smooth, quick, and safe movements requires an understanding of how a robot can be commanded to move from point A to point B.
