Research Topics


Flexible automated manufactoring cells are to be developed to produce ROI wiring harnesses and systems by the use of programmable robotics and changeable end point manipulators and gippers. The thrust is to develop a highly consistent, yet versatile manufactoring process geared to guide changeover with repetitive accuracy to handle various wiring harnesses in an automated mode. The intent is to develop handling techniques, methods and processes to completely automate ROI harnesses to support major programs such as the V-22 Osprey.
