Title:
Design-to-fabrication automation for the cognitive machine shop 
Abstract:
To meet the rising demands for pure customization of products, new approaches for automated fabrication of customized part geometry are needed, on both the software and hardware side, that balance flexibility, robustness and efficiency. This is a great challenge since today it requires significant human expertise supported, only partially, by computer-aided approaches. This paper introduces a new approach and framework for an autonomous design-to-fabrication system that integrates cognitive capa...    »
