Many modern spray deposition processes, such as spray painting or coating, are automated by using a robot to move an applicator in a series of passes over the surface being sprayed. Determining the robot path that creates the required coat thickness over the surface can be considered as an optimization problem, which traditionally has been solved in the spatial domain. In this paper, results from sampling theory are used to transfer the problem into the spatial frequency domain, which… CONTINUE READING
