    Abstract

    Case study work carried out within the aerospace sector has highlighted the requirement for highly accurate and high capacity robots in aerospace assembly, literature supports this observation. This paper presents the generic capabilities of such a system. These include the ability to rapidly locate its-self within a large measurement volume using supplementary laser metrology systems, to carry out detailed inspection beyond the line of sight, and to accurately locate parts, drill holes and fettle interfaces. The concept presented is for a standardised robot which will provide a flexible automation system able to carry out a full range of operations required in the assembly of large aerospace structures.
