ROSCon 2017: Robotic Path Planning for Geometry-Constrained Processes -- Levi Armstrong (Southwest Research Institute)

Looking foward to ROSCon 2018 we're highlighting presentations from last year.

Levi gives a brief introduction to the Noether package from ROS Industrial.



This proposal covers the development of a framework for the automated generation of efficient tool path plans from 3D geometry for industrial processes such as painting or sanding. The work is organized into three main software modules. The first module analyzes 3D data to extract features salient to the desired process. The second module works on these features to generate tool paths that optimally perform the process on individual features. The final module, sequence planning, determines the optimal ordering for processing the entire part.
