Robotic Construction Laboratory

The Robotic Construction research laboratory is engaged in the development of innovative solutions for sustainable construction using robotic principles. In order to achieve this, new construction methodologies, materials and automations are investigated. Specifically, the Lab implements techniques in the field of computational design and multi-objective analysis for the construction of complex, non-standard design solutions aiming to introduce and achieve active involvement of robots in the manufacturing process. Currently, the research in this direction addresses complex construction issues in order to ensure accuracy and reduction of manufacturing defects as well as to achieve flexibility, economy and ecology of the material used. The laboratory is equipped with a 6-axis ABB IRB 2600 industrial robot.
