Project Description:Virtual Commissioning of Automated Workcells

Team RSS collaborated with EOS, an engineering consulting firm, to develop automated virtual workcells using two Virtual Commissioning Software packages: Dassault Systemes’ DELMIA Automation and Siemens’ Process Simulate. These packages validate the application of control systems in manufacturing and have the potential to revolutionize automated systems simulation. The workcells developed by Team RSS will be used as a demonstrational tool and highlight communication between components, data collection and dynamic response of the workcells.

"Lake Superior State is the only robotics program of its kind in the country. I can work up any research or senior project idea with a professor or my advisor. I studied for a year in Japan through LSSU's connection with the Japan Center for Michigan Universities, and became fluent in Japanese. A Japanese company called Fanuc makes most of the robots in our lab. I'd like to roll my senior research project into a career with Fanuc that bridges the two countries and cultures."
