Along with the progress in robot technologies, industrial robot manipulators nowadays have applied for more diverse and complex tasks. Consequently, the conventional manipulative devices, such as the teaching pendant and keyboard, become less suitable for task governing and teaching. Motivated by it, in this paper, we propose a novel manipulation system for industrial robot manipulators based on a tablet PC. With wireless communication, the proposed system provides flexibility for remote manipulation. Furthermore, a graphical interface and several assistive tools are developed, allowing the operator to conduct tasks in a more intuitive way. Experiments are executed to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed manipulation system, with its performance compared to conventional manipulative devices.
