Masters thesis: 

Mikkel is implementing a laser line scanner to determine the characteristics of welding panels including features like scallops, baseplate stick out, as well as the start and end point for welding. He is testing whether the line laser can determine the necessary features faster than the 1D distance laser sensor currently in use. 

The new scanner and sensing routine is meant for a robot setup that welds micropanels for ship hulls and other large welding elements.

Mikkel is studying BEng in Robot Systems. His thesis works in collaboration with Inrotech and is being supervised by the Head of the LSP center, Christian Schlette.

Mikkel says that he is excited about this project because of his past experience working as a sailor working on an offshore service operation vessel in a wind turbine park. He was therefore very interested when he found out about the chance to wrok with Inrotech and it’s connection to shipbuilding.
