Public Summary Month 3/2011

In this second project phase (months 4-6) the robot could be finally ordered after receiving the funds of EU. After the modifications by our partner MRK the delivery of the robot at ZHAW is awaited in week 18/2011. Thus the hardware installation will not be finished before end of May 2011. The lab at the premises of ZHAW is prepared, the installation of a concrete fundament for the robot is in process.

The airplane fuselage is ready to ship to ZHAW (delivery in week 14/2011), a rack for installing the fuselage is built up. A robot gripper for of the fuselage component grasping is developed and built up.

The task researching the compensation of forces and torques induced by the movement of the gripped component is still ongoing.

During a visit to Leica Geosystems, the suitable measurement equipment was discussed and the availability for the JILAS experiment was checked.

As far as possible without robot controller available the software development phase is started. Parts of the mainprogram are in work or already realised.
