Title: METHOD FOR CONTROLLING THE SURFACE OF A PART BY MEANS OF AN AUTOMATED SENSOR
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method comprising the following steps: determination of a control trajectory for the sensor (13) in relation to the surface (3) according to the characteristics of the robot (15) using a digital model of the part (5); determination of control positions of the sensor (13) along the trajectory; determination, by calculation, of an area (23) of the surface (3) controlled by the sensor (13) at each control position, and verification, by calculation, that the entire area (23) is in a detection field of the sensor (13), without any masked elements, using the characteristics of the sensor (13); verification, by calculation, that all of the surface (3) is controllable for the sensor (13); and, if all of the surface (3) is not controllable, addition of a control position, and/or modification of at least one of the control positions and/or modification of at least one of the characteristics of the sensor (13).
