Design and visualization of object in simulation software Rhino 6.0, simulation and animation of production process in SW Grasshopper, modelling and programming of robotic movements (Grasshopper + KUKA|prc), production of formwork from polystyrene by RHWC method, process of formwork realization, its processing and final concreting.
Picture design and visualization in simulation SW Rhino 6.0, tracing tool center point of robotic hand, vectorization and optimization, modelling and programming of robotic movements (Grasshopper + KUKA|prc), production of large-area images, final processing and framing.
Development and production of work tools and vacuum suction tools for masonry work. The working tool (grip) ensures the technological processes of the brickwork: depalletization, centering of the brick at the transfer table, capturing, relocating a brick element to goal place; positioning the brick element at the exact position in the structure, applying a mortar to the brick element; preparing the shape and size of elements by precise cutting.
Robot installation, installation of safety elements, installation of wiring boxes and switchboards including Beckhoff modules, installation of storage racks and cabinets, placement of workshop table, bench drill and other support equipment and tools.
Learn how the construction is breathing. Find out what lies under construction, architecture and geodesy. Together we visit the labs, sit in the lecture hall and talk to students and teachers. Shake your hand with the robotic worker, you'll see a membrane architecture studio.
For both days we have prepared for you a program that will guide you throw process of study and research. At the presentations you will find a lot of brunches and departments at our faculty. Shake your hand with a robotic worker or experience for yourself what a fire experiment looks like.
The project was devoted to the design of a functional model of a masonry robot. The output of the project was an industrial robot that will be able to technically implement the complete bricklaying process. With the help of a specially developed software, the robotic masonry system can convert the necessary mathematical model data from the BIM environment to the KUKA KRC4 industrial robots and perform optimum robotic hand motion design.
Processing of input and output signals, assembly of safety elements. Vacuum suction and valve control. Installation of sensors (ultrasound and laser). Attempts: walling, drawing, processing of vector images and mathematical curves.
The project was devoted to the design of a functional model of a painting robot. The output of the project was a robot, created in a scaled-down scale, capable of using a control unit and special computer programs to paint a small area of the wall with paint. During the project, a functional robotic paint nozzle, a moving part, a control including optimization procedures were developed.
In 2016 our vision of the future of building robots was significantly shifted. Cooperation with the leading manufacturer of industrial robots KUKA was established. In the same year two team members graduated from basic training in programming KUKA industrial robots in the KRC4 environment..
The history of the laboratory begins in 2010, when the idea of creating a building robot for heavy and demanding work was born at the Department of Construction Technology, Faculty of Civil Engineering, CTU in Prague. The first construction robot was built from LEGO MindStorm and was able to create a small part of wall from the LEGO bricks.
