The paper will describe new methods in robot simulation and control with Virtual Reality techniques. A suitable testbed was created to investigate the benefits of this new technology of man-machine-interfacing to robot simulation systems and to robot control systems. With this testbed, simulation concepts for industrial robots such as off-line programming, off-line teaching and robot work cell planning were evaluated. Furthermore, new concepts were developed in the area of teleoperation. As opposed to conventional robot simulation, human factors play an important role in virtual reality applications and have a strong influence on hardware and especially software developments.
