Tools for Robotics in SME Workcells: Challenges and Approaches for Calibration and Registration
Jeremy A. Marvel, Elena R. Messina, Brian Antonishek, Karl Van Wyk, Lisa J. Fronczek
An overview of the challenges associated with robot workcell calibration and registration is presented, with a particular focus on the challenges faced by small- and medium-sized manufacturing enterprises. Considerations for the barriers to integrating systems-of-systems workcells are described, and the proposed solutions from literature are presented. We discuss the impacts that calibration and registration have on many common robot applications, and highlight specific use cases of robot-sensor and robot-robot system registration.
