Automated technologies for construction activities


As construction projects are getting bigger and more complex, hence also their productivity must be improved, while preserving its labor from hazardous involvements.

Such requirements can be accomplished by the adoption of robotized products, which would preserve workers from being involved within hazardous situations and would come out with high-quality products.

Novel miniature robot devices for high quality multi-colour interior wall painting carried by a robot arm are developed and successfully tested.

New multi-colour spraying end-tools were developed and fixed on the robot arm, in order to be able to reproduce coloured artworks.

This research step belongs to a wider project aimed at boasting Automation In Construction through the use of robotized systems.
