Automated Fabrication and Assembly in Construction
This project was an attempt to develop a human-robot workflow for timber structure assembly. Structural elements were pre-fabricated using digital fabrication methods and were delivered on site with no specific order. The computer vision could detect each element and register the gripping point. Then the robotic arm will sort and hold each of the elements for a skilled worker to fix them to each other.
This project was developed as an internship project at Autodesk BUILD Space facilities during the summer of 2018. The video above was presented at RobArch 2018 conference and is publicly available.
