    This sensor-based approach for registration and stacking of electronic substrate sublaminates replaces pin-in-slot methods, yet does not require accurate automation equipment. Tests of a pilot workcell for this approach showed that the contact holes were consistently aligned to 2.5 μm (3/spl sigma/), more than ten times better than the traditional mechanical method.

    The development of a sophisticated robot experimental test-bed is described. A CRS Robotics Corporation A460 robot is de-engineered to add joint torque control and a Windows-based user interface so that advanced model-based robot controls can be tested. With this interface, experiment set-up, execution, data collection and display are selected with a mouse with point and click commands View full abstract»

    The self-mobile space manipulator (SM2) is a seven-DOF inspection robot, capable of walking along the pre-integrated I-beam truss structure of Space Station Freedom (SSF). The robot is capable of projecting cameras anywhere interior or exterior of the SSF, and will be an ideal tool for inspecting connectors, structures, and other facilities on the SSF. Using a full-scale model of a smal... View full abstract»
