Objectives and Approach

The objective of this project was to facilitate the design, integration and operation of flexible assembly and inspection cells using advanced sensor technologies by:

The support environment was to provide:

The system will be demonstrated and evaluated in an electronics assembly and inspection application involving both surface-mounted and through-mounted components.

Exploitation

The project results will be applied to the production environments of the major manufacturing partners and will be exploited as commercial products by the IT vendor partners. Whilst the initial application is expected to be in electronics assembly, subsequent application to other industries is anticipated.
