Open Sensor Integrated Architecture for Managing Manufacturing Uncertainty


CIM SEARCH - 5272

Keywords calibration, robotics


Start Date: 01-OCT-90 / Duration: 24 months

[ contact / participants ]


Objectives and Approach

The objective of this project is to develop calibration tools for improving the efficiency, performance and reliability of robot flexible manufacturing workcells.

Two of the four major calibration uncertainties will be addressed: the relative position of robot and workpieces prior to manufacture, and changes in the shape of workpieces during manufacture.

To deal with these uncertainties three solutions will be provided:

A neutral interface for sensors and robot controllers will be developed. A laboratory demonstrator is planned and an integration test-bed is foreseen in seam welding, laser cutting or metal deposition.
