SelfPaint-A self-programming paint booth
Paper i proceeding, 2018

In this paper we present a unique Fraunhofer approach that aims towards a vision to automate the product preparation in paint shops by automatically generating robot paths and process conditions that guarantee a certain wanted paint coverage. This will be accomplished through a combination of state-of-the-art simulation technology, inline quality control by novel terahertz thickness measurement technology, and surface treatment technology. The benefits of the approach are a shortened product preparation time, increased quality and reduced material and energy consumption. The painting of a tractor fender is used to demonstrate the approach.
