Programming by Demonstration (PbD) is an intuitive way of teaching new skills to a robot either by the guidance of demonstration devices or by means of natural communications, such as gestures, voice commands, and kinesthetic methods. This paper proposes a novel low-cost demonstration device for an industrial manipulator that can considerably reduce time and effort required for programming. The demonstration device is designed to be portable and can be easily integrated to an existing industrial manipulator. In a repeatability test, the robustness of the device is validated to meet the industrial standards. The device is integrated to an ABB industrial manipulator and the functionality is verified for a pattern tracing task. © 2017 IEEE.
