Abstract

This PLC is provided with an output unit that outputs assistance information for assisting elimination of a target abnormality by using abnormality history data having written therein an abnormality log element including type information, occurrence time, and elimination time of an abnormality and operation history data having written therein an operation log element including content information and execution time of an operation. The output unit extracts, from the abnormality history data, the abnormality log element including the type information indicating a type similar to that of the target abnormality. The output unit extracts, from the operation history data, the operation log element to which the execution time belongs during a period from the occurrence time to the elimination time included in the extracted abnormality log element, and generates assistance information on the basis of the extracted operation log element. Thus, even a user with limited knowledge and experience can easily eliminate an abnormality.

A support device for supporting development of a sequence program develops a call instruction of a unit program which constitutes the sequence program into a circuit indicated by a sequence logic defined by the unit program and displays the instruction at a time when the sequence program is displayed. In accordance with an operation for changing the circuit, the support device changes the sequence logic of the circuit. In the case where the sequence program is changed into an executable code, in accordance with a switching option, the support program assigns one of a code of the sequence logic after changed and a call instruction code to a call instruction in the sequence program.

Abstract

In this invention, an image processing device comprises a feature region detection unit, a selection unit, and a position and orientation determination unit. The feature region detection unit detects, from a two-dimensional image obtained by imaging a workpiece, a feature region included in one surface element composing the surface of the workpiece. The selection unit selects, from among three-dimensional point-cloud data obtained through three-dimensional measurement of the workpiece, data for at least three points associated with the feature region. The position and orientation determination unit uses the data for the at least three points and prior information about the shape of the surface element to determine position and orientation information about the position and orientation of the surface element. This configuration makes it possible to quickly detect the position and orientation of an object.
