The third quarter of the project covered the following:
• Literature Search: The process of evaluating the pertinent literature continued. Results are summarized.
• Mr. Richard Silva, developed an initial work cell simulation with two robots. Rich will continue to develop detailed 3-D process simulation models as his M.Sc. thesis project. Rich is employed with Bechtel at the Yucca Mountain project.
• The equipment detail and estimates were refined based on the literature survey results for different manufacturing plant design options.
• Concepts and Methods for Vision-Based Hot Cell Supervision and control (Ph.D. Student Jae-Kyu Lee )
