The modern results of artificial intelligence research have provided new techniques useful for the design of more sophisticated and advanced industrial robots. The use of industrial robots in the solution of the automation of the assembly process for mechanical systems represents a very important application of industrial robotics. The purpose of this paper is to illustrate how with the use of an automatic problem solver operating within the computer which monitors the industrial robot, it is possible to achieve the automatic emergency recovery from a failure occurring during the normal activity devoted to the assembly process. The results presented, have been implemented on the UNIVAC 1108 computer by utilizing the MICROPLANNER programming in the description to the computer of the industrial robot's activity.
