Robots to Re-Construction (Bots2ReC)

Start date: Feb 1, 2016, End date: Jul 31, 2019,

Despite the high degree of industrial automation, robotic solutions are not yet prevalent in construction and demolition industry due to the complex environment and demanding requirements. For hazardous tasks, like the removal of asbestos contamination from a flat (rehabilitation site), manual performance is very inefficient, due to the intense safety measures. This leads to the main objective of ...
