Mobile manipulator for assisting human workers in aerospace production tasks
The VALERI project proposes the development and validation of a mobile manipulator for assisting human workers in aerospace production tasks. In the current production environment, specialized and stationary robotic systems are not economical. This would change with the employment of mobile manipulators, by allowing for one robot to be used for similar tasks in multiple stations. Novel safety strategies and components offer a clear added-value to the robot by empowering the human co-workers to collaborate and work directly with the mobile manipulator. The project aims to carry out two exemplary tasks for the end-users which are carried out in variations at virtually all assembly stations, so that the system will be highly productive. These tasks involve operations which are necessary for carrying out other tasks in all other sectors of manufacturing.
