The constant need for reducing production costs and faster arrival to the market of new products requires changes in product design, material selection, and production processes. While applying the changes, a level of complexity of contemporary industrial systems is undoubtedly increasing. Despite the fact that industrial robotic systems are becoming more and more complex, they should become user-friendlier and easily accessible for human operators at the same time. Such systems should have a smaller number of well-trained and highly educated employees who manage the production. This paper present an approach in programming a robot for doing assembly tasks based on Programming by Demonstration principles. The system tracks gestures and movements of the human operator by using Microsoft Kinect ® sensor. To enable an interaction between the system and the human operator, a simple gesture command list is developed. This methodology could help non-expert users to teach robots how to perform new assembly tasks in more human like ways. The command list present a very first step in a development of more powerful gesture language that should provide a simple and an intuitive way for exchaniging information between people and machines.
