abstract
The control of a robot is a complex task, it needs a large number of calculations. To complete these calculations during the movement it is necessary to use fast mathematical processors. Because a robot exists of several separately controlled axes, this system needs parallel-processing. The integration of transputers in the control system is very promising, it will allow to use advanced real-time control algorithms suchlike model-based predictive control.
