Most of the interfaces which are designed to control or program industrial robots are complex and require special training for the user and the programmer. This complexity alongside the changing environment of small medium enterprises (SMEs) has lead to absence of robots from SMEs. The costs of (re)programming the robots and (re)training the robot users exceed initial costs of installation and are not suitable for such businesses. In order to solve this shortcoming and design more user-friendly industrial robots; we propose a new interface which uses augmented reality (AR) and multimodal human-robot interaction. We show that such an approach allows easier manipulation of robots at industrial environments.
