SBIR Phase I: Robotic Surface Finishing

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$100,000.00
Agency:
NSF
Principal Investigator:
Steven Somes
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop a new robot architecture targeting fine-fidelity, force dependent tasks. The project will use an innovative 2 degree-of-freedom manipulator with lightweight construction and smooth, low friction joints. The control system follows… More

SBIR Phase I: Process Control for Robotic Surface Finishing

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$100,000.00
Agency:
NSF
Principal Investigator:
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project explores the innovation of a robot that, like biological creatures, operates by applying and sensing contact forces. Today's position-controlled robots have limited applicability to many manufacturing tasks, especially those related to material… More

2007 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$500,000.00
Agency:
NSF
Principal Investigator:
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II research project explores the innovation of a robot that, like biological creatures, operates by applying and sensing contact forces. Today's position-controlled robots have limited applicability to many manufacturing tasks, especially those… More

SBIR Phase I: Integrated Inspection for Precision Surface Finishing

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$100,000.00
Agency:
NSF
Principal Investigator:
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will investigate automated inspection and finishing of variable, free-form parts. In turbine blade manufacture, part geometry and finishing work requirements vary part-to-part, so blades must be visually inspected and shaped and polished by… More
