Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Abstract

This section examines the 'robotic' equipment used in manufacturing industry and includes reprogrammable automation equipment. NC machine tools and automated assembly equipment are excluded except where industrial robots are involved. Similarly, 'hard' automation (e.g. cam-controlled mass-production equipment) is omitted. Thus the main subjects of interest will be industrial robotics and artificial vision.
