In order to successfully implement robot systems as automation solutions in industry, two key aspects requiring consideration are accuracy and cost. Software-based compensation methods improve the accuracy of robots and special-purpose machines at a much lower cost than by making constructional modifications. As an independent and experienced institute, Fraunhofer IPA helps you reassess accuracy requirements and, where applicable, implement them more effectively.
Technologies and innovations
In the near future, the demand for high-accuracy automation solutions in areas of industry, such as handling and manufacturing, will continue to rise. At the same time, cost-saving measures will be necessary. As the prices of powerful computer systems go down, highly-complex robot systems are now being modeled and simulated in realtime. As a result, cost-intensive hardware can often be replaced by software solutions.
The more accurately a system functions, the more faultlessly and better quality the end-product will be. Fraunhofer IPA implements relatively low cost methods to significantly improve your automation solution.
