SPIRIT - A software framework for the ecient setup of industrial inspection robots

The SPIRIT projects aims to develop an “inspection skill” for robots that takes the step from programming of complex inspection tasks to configuring such tasks. This will reduce the engineering costs when setting up inspection robots in industrial environments. The main result is a software framework that consists of two parts:

  • The “offline framework” - a simulator of the real robotic work-cell that is used for developing the inspection task: simulate the robot, generate the inspection trajectory.

  • The “inline framework” - it actually executes the simulated inspection on the real robot.
