Robot offers an excellent means of utilizing high level technology to make a given manufacturing operation more profitable and competitive. Apart from manufacturing, robots are also being utilized in the areas of medicine and agriculture with great returns. Robotic applications now require multiple robots working in a coordinated manner, something similar to an orchestra. This lead to the concept of a Robotic Instrument Digital Interfacing (RIDI) system for real time coordinated control of robotic devices. It provides a novel runtime environment that supports the building and deployment of distributed robotic devices.;The objective of this research is to design and develop a Graphical User Interface (GUI). The GUI aims at providing extensive support for monitoring multiple device activity in real time. With the exception of code for device-specific interfaces, the prototype RIDI-GUI implementation will be coded in Java. This thesis details on the various aspects involved in the design and implementation of the GUI software for two robot arms.
