Most industrial robots are designed for work like milling, welding, transportation, and painting. Other robots are designed for art, research, or education. The e-David robot (developed at the University of Konstanz) has the capability of producing artistic drawings.


This Demonstrations use a SCARA robot model with inverse kinematics for robot trajectory planning. It converts pixel positions from a source image to target positions for robot end-effects. It uses Mathematica's built-in function FindShortestTour to plan an efficient robot trajectory.
