To expand robotics for new large-scale applications, SwRI has developed a mobile manipulator system that utilizes remote position sensing of the end-effector to accurately operate over a large work envelope. For this program SwRI's goal was to utilize an off-the-shelf industrial manipulator, mobile platform, and metrology system.
