Models a robot arm with 5 degrees of freedom and a gripper, along with two conveyor belts. The robot transfers parts from one conveyor belt to the other. One conveyor belt brings the parts to the robot arm, and the other belt transports the parts away from the robot arm. The model includes electrical actuation, supervisory logic, and optimization of end effector trajectory.
