    Manufacturers of aerospace parts, heavy machinery, and other industrial equipment require large automated manufacturing systems for painting, surface-finishing, inspection, and more. These systems often employ a gantry outfitted with an industrial manipulator to extend the work envelope over many meters. Due to their sheer size and associated costs, these systems must perform multiple operations to ensure adequate return on investment. Automating these large, multi-process-systems has challenges including motion planning for redundant kinematics, calibration of 3D scanning sensors, environment management, user-interface, and collision monitoring.

    In this session, Matthew Robinson ROS- Americas Program Manager at Southwest Research Institute, which manages the ROS-Industrial Consortium Americas, will share recent experiences with several complex automation systems for large-scale manufacturing that have recently been placed into production where ROS was used to enable and support new capabilities.
