Automated robot inspection of spray painted surfaces

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Applications of paints and coatings can be greatly enhanced by using robotics spraying. Benefits include increased application rates with tighter control over coating finish, quality, and costs. The use of robotics can reduce human exposure to hazardous materials and dangerous spray environments. Successful deployment of a robotics system requires process feedback, automated task and path planning, and teleoperation. This paper describes a measurement system consisting of an inspection sensor and automated path planner for automated robot inspection of painted surfaces. The inspection sensor includes ultrasonic and eddy current components configured in a mechanism providing both compliant force and compliant motion.
