Articulated limb for a robot or haptic interface and robot and haptic interface comprising at least one such articulated limb
Articulated limb comprising at least first (2) and second (4) rigid segments and an articulation (6) allowing the first and second segments to pivot one relative to the other about an axis of rotation (Y), said articulation (6) comprising fibres, in which limb each of the segments (2, 4) comprises a body (8.1, 8.2) and an end element (10.1, 10.2) which is arranged at one end of said body, the two end elements (10.1, 10.2) being held facing one another by said articulation (6), said end elements (10.1, 10.2) comprising tapering profiles with vertices facing one another, each of said end elements (10.1, 10.2) being produced prior to its being secured to the corresponding body (8.1, 8.2).

Device and method for operating an industrial robot
The invention relates to a device (10) in the form of a hand-held operating device for operating an industrial robot (12), comprising a graphical operator interface (18) having a touch-sensitive display (20) such as a touch display or touch screen surrounded by a display frame (34) for displaying at least one virtual operating element (22.1...22.n, 24.1...24.n), which represents a function for operating the industrial robot (12) and which can be operated by touching the operating element with a finger of an operating person or a pen, a control unit (30) for controlling the graphical operator interface (18) and for communicating with a robot controller (16), a haptic mark (40.1...40.n, 42.1...42.n) associated with the at least one virtual operating element (22.1...22.n, 24.1...24.n) and designed as a guide, which haptic mark is arranged in a display frame (34) that surrounds the touch-sensitive display (20) at least in some areas and/or is arranged in frame segments (36, 38, 50, 52, 56) of the display frame and by means of which haptic mark the finger of an operating person or the pin can be guided in the direction of the at least one operating element. In order to increase the safety in the operation of an industrial robot, a plurality of virtual operating elements (22.1...22.n; 24.1...24.n) is arranged along the display frame (34) and adjacent to the display frame, and a haptic mark (40.1...40.n; 42.1...42.n) in or on the display frame (34) is associated with each virtual operating element (22.1...22.n; 24.1...24.n).
