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.
