Building Strategies for On-site Robotic Construction, 2014-2018
NCCR Digital Fabrication research project
This project investigates building strategies for robotic on-site construction, and concentrates on the development of a custom computational design and simulation framework that is capable of operating robotic machinery in uncertain environments. This approach involves robust and adaptive building techniques, as well as enhanced design and fabrication technologies that allow to directly control interacting and autonomous robotic systems for non-standard construction tasks.
The research is pursued in the framework of the National Competence Centre of Research (NCCR) Digital Fabrication.
