According to a Eurkalert news release, a company called Fatronik Technological Centre has built a robot capable of climbing on aircraft fuselages and wings while carrying out precision drilling and riveting operations. Using a series of suction cups, the robot can climb on any material that will support its weight. The robot also includes a vision system for self-orienting itself in the work zone. The company plans on adapting the robot to automated ship building and other construction projects.
