Abstract

This paper explains a system for industrial applications that utilizes an aerial vehicle to spray paint autonomously. The potential for such a system to accomplish accurate and rapid painting motivates the endeavor. The painting UAV is equipped with an arm as well as a spray gun that is mounted on a pan-tilt mechanism. Power and paints are delivered via lines from an external unit to allow for extensive deployment times for industrial painting applications. A spray painting system's capacity to paint planar objects like walls in a single color is a basic requirement. However, this work focuses on a more complex operation that encompasses the basic duty, such as painting on structure and painting a desired texture appearance. An offline component captures a model of the target surface, an offline component designs the painted surface appearance and generates the accompanying robotic painting commands, a live system sprays the target surface.
