Abstract
The application of robotics in automotive manufacturing have established high levels of productivity and quality but these gains have not penetrated the aerospace industry due to the positional accuracy requirements and the fact that robots are not accurate. It is important then, to develop affordable and accurate guidance as well as cost efficient robot enhancements to create robotic systems capable of aerospace tolerances. The Recognition Robotics and Comau approach uses vision components with high MRAs, standard robot options and representative testing to create the most affordable and near-at-hand project direction for the AARG target applications. BENEFIT: Increase the use of standard industrial robots in aerospace industry by creating tools that allows these robots to meet the aerospace accuracies.
