Autonomous construction with the help of cable-moving robot systems
The research project deals with the topic of cable-moving parallel robots (cable-driven parallel robots) in construction production and architecture. Contrary to usual ground-connected systems, this robot technology acts floating above the ground. This allows the system to better avoid static and moving objects (people and machines) in the room. It therefore has a quantitatively better use of space. The ropes attached to the ceiling and their computer-controlled change in length ensure that the robot platform has six degrees of freedom of movement.
The original project called "Squid - hanging robot" with the University of Kassel has received several innovation awards in recent years (Unikat Kassel, Converge Challenge, Edinborough). It was also reviewed in a first prototype phase by Brainshell for a patent process.
