Town continue to be linked with former loan favourite James Vaughan and the manager said: "We will still be looking to add to our strikeforce as the transfer window progresses."
Out of contract after four years at Turf Moor, Paterson turned down a new deal with Burnley, for whom he scored 37 times in 152 games after a £1m move from Scunthorpe.
He began his career at Stoke and had a loan spell at Grimsby, and has netted 58 goals in 225 games at club level. He has one goal in 15 Northern Ireland appearances.
The Potteries-born player has agreed a two-year contract at Town, who have the option of a further 12 months.
"Martin represents another excellent signing to the group of forward players already in the squad," said Robins, who starts pre-season training tomorrow.
"I am a firm believer in putting round pegs in round holes and Martin has come here to play as a striker.
"He played three-quarters of his 41 games for Burnley last season in a wide position, but his career history shows he has flourished in the central role he feels is his best and which he will fulfil for us.
"Martin is a strong and resilient character with an excellent workrate which I think our supporters will really appreciate.
"That is backed up with good technical ability and importantly a proven track record of scoring goals at Championship level.
"He is a different type of player to those already here and will complement our other strikers and pose a different type of threat for opponents."
Robins added: "Our patience throughout the course of the close-season has paid dividends this week with our three signings coming together.
"All three have chosen to join us over other Championship clubs for football reasons, and that is testament to the development of this club."Related content
