Abstract

Programming robots has long been an expensive and time-consuming task with a high barrier to entry for non-experts. The emergence of end-user development approaches for robotics has allowed to lower this barrier. Existing approaches, however, still lack proper software engineering techniques to allow the programming of fully functional robot behaviours and facilitate further maintenance and reuse of the programs developed by end users. In this work, we introduce a low-code approach for allowing physical trainers to program robot-assisted physical training activities without the assistance of a robotics engineer. The approach relies on a textual domain-specific language (DSL) to allow end users to specify the expected robot behaviour through Behaviour-Driven Development (BDD) scenarios.
