Pages 20

Robot testing is very important because it plays an important role in the success or failure of robotization. Two common types of robot testing are known as robot performance testing and robot reliability testing [1]. Over the years, a number of methods have been developed to conduct performance testing; the forms of performance testing vary from the verication of design goals by robot manufacturers to the determination of the most suitable robot for a specic application. There are various types of robot reliability testing and their purpose is to obtain knowledge of robot failures.
