ARM Institute Announces Selection of Eleven Technology Projects

Machine Welding
The Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing (ARM) Institute has announced their awardees for their 2018 Technology Project Call.  (http://arminstitute.org/arm-18-01-projects/). Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute has significant participation in three of these projects.
Rensselaer is Principal Investigator (PI) for Robot Raconteur: An Interoperable Middleware for Robotics, for rapid and secure integration of industrial robots, sensors, peripherals, and simulation software from multiple vendors and platforms. Rensselaer is also a subcontractor on two other project awards:
  • Advanced Control for Robotic Surface Treatment: (PI: UTRC) This project aims to develop a robust and precise robotic surface rolling cell and demonstrate deep rolling capability to improve fatigue of aerospace graded part representative of turbine blade.
  • Human-Robot Teaming for Composite Ply Lay-up and Conforming: (PI: Boeing) This project combines control technologies and task planning, allowing a human-robot team to better manipulate large composite sheets.
