Control of a robot for hydrodynamic processing of concrete and metal surfaces

Title

Control of a robot for hydrodynamic processing of concrete and metal surfaces

Abstract

The goal of this project is to develop a control system for the robot which is constructed for hydrodynamic processing of concrete and metal services. The robot control includes control of two track drives, two axes for tool positioning, plus one additional axis for tool swing. Due to harsh condition in which robot operates, a remote control via wireless console is implemented. Advanced solutions for automatic adjustment of robot distance towards the processed surface should be implemented.
