Abstract

The authors, who are experts of the Technical University of Budapest Department of Production Engineering, work on the solutions of monitoring and sensoring problems in the CIM Pilot System. The results and the further tasks are discussed in this paper.

Increasing the reliability and flexibility of the system were successfully realised with a shared intelligence monitoring system based on multi-sensor technique. It included monitoring and controlling the force in robot gripper, monitoring assembly operations with force/torque sensor integrated into the robot wrist, and visual supervising with image processing.

The result was to perform unmanned assembly processes with application of the different sensors mentioned above. Application examples representing these methods are also introduced in the final chapter of this article.
