First results of the CARLoS Project “Cooperative Robot for Large Spaces Manufacturing” were presented in Navalia Fair 2014. The prototype was showed in the Aclunaga stand.

AIMEN is working on the development of an autonomous robot that will increase the productivity of the shipbuilding industry. The device will be able to perform arduous and repetitive tasks , in cooperation with human operators , in a large, unstructured industrial environment , such as shipbuilding . In this initiative , are involved  AIMEN  and two Galician companies : ATENASA and José Valiña shipyard .

The problem at hand in CARLoS project are the fit-out operations of ship cabins that include stud welding and marking of CAD mode information onto the raw superstructure to assist posterior fit-out operations.
