Autocalibration(TM) method for intelligent control of robots reduces set-up and replacement time for wafer-handling robots by giving them the intelligence to "teach themselves." A robot controlled with this method moves to a coarse wafer placement, and then, using proprietary methods, fine-tunes the precise placement location. This keeps transport reliability high because robot action is based on real position information rather than the commanded tolerances of subjective operator-based teaching.
