Lufthansa Technik Develops Robot to Test Cockpit Controls

Lufthansa Technik (LHT) has developed a robotic procedure for more consistent, reliable testing of cockpit controls. According to LHT, the fully-automated procedure-called RoCCET (Robot Controlled Cockpit Electronics Testing)-can greatly reduce the time it takes employees to manually check cockpit switches and LEDs.

The RoCCET robot features integrated sensors to measure the forces that occur when switches are activated, and it is equipped with several industrial cameras to look for damage and measure brightness from various angles.

RoCCET is currently in the integration phase and will initially be used for cockpit controls on Boeing 787 and Airbus A320 and A350 aircraft.
