Factories of the future: Mobile manipulators for aerospace production
The factory of the future is now coming to the aerospace industry. To help it along the way, a consortium made up of European research institutions and industrial partners is developing mobile, autonomously operating robots. These robots will help with the assembly of aerospace components and work hand-in-hand with humans on the production floor.
VALERI is the name of the project that was initiated and now coordinated by the Fraunhofer Institute for Factory Operation and Automation (IFF) in Magdeburg, Germany. Together with their industrial partners Airbus DS, FACC, IDPSA, and KUKA Laboratories Gmbh, and their research partners Profactor GmbH and PRODINTEC, the robotics specialists want to make their vision a reality.
