  • BRIX: an autonomous system for brick wall construction

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract A major challenge within construction robotics lies in deploying robots for building tasks directly on construction sites. Recent years have seen a surge in innovative solutions, particularly focused on creating mechanical bricklayer to automate wall construction as much as possible. However, most of these solutions involve the use of heavy industrial robots and complex systems that are difficult to calibrate and program. In this paper, the authors introduce a prototype of an automated, lightweight system for brick wall construction that is straightforward to calibrate and program. To validate the proposed approach, a full-scale demonstrator along with its control logic is presented. Experimental results, displayed at a prominent industry expo, demonstrate the viability of the proposed system. Additionally, the system was evaluated using the Construction Automation and Robotics for Sustainability Assessment Method (CARSAM), which provides a structured approach to examine the environmental, social, technological, and economic dimensions of sustainability in the context of advanced construction technologies. By applying this method, stakeholders can better understand the broader implications of integrating such technologies into construction practices, guiding more informed decisions towards sustainable development.

  • Bridging depths and data in mines: 5G-based point cloud mapping in
           unstructured environments

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Underground mines pose significant challenges, including hazardous working conditions, limited access, and the need to ensure the safety of human workers. Digital transformation through the integration of modern technologies is essential to mitigate these challenges and enhance the overall safety and efficiency of mining operations. This paper addresses the pressing need for 5G connectivity for the digital transformation of underground mines and demonstrates its application through a live 3D point cloud mapping by a mobile robot. The results of the experiments conducted to validate the network’s performance for such a use-case are presented. The first experiment involved testing the latency of the network over a test drift at various loads. The second experiment involved mapping the drift and streaming the 3D point cloud map of the drift over the 5G network. These initial experiments emphasize the potential of the 5G-enabled automation in underground mines and holds promise in digitalizing underground mining operations.

  • Adaptive robotic construction of wood frames

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Automated robotic construction of wood frames faces significant challenges, particularly in the perception of large studs and maintaining tight assembly tolerances amidst the natural variability and dimensional instability of wood. To address these challenges, we introduce a novel multi-modal, multi-stage perception strategy for adaptive robotic construction, particularly for wood light-frame assembly. Our strategy employs a coarse-to-fine method of perception by integrating deep learning-based stud pose estimation with subsequent stages of pose refinement, combining the flexibility of AI-based approaches with the precision of traditional computer vision techniques. We demonstrate this strategy through experimental validation and construction of two different wall designs, using both low- and high-quality framing lumber, and achieve far better precision than construction industry guidelines suggest for designs of similar dimension.

  • Robotic 3D printing of structural slabs using polyethylene waste as filler
           to reduce carbon footprint

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Concrete 3D printing is an emerging technology with great potential to revolutionize the construction industry with respect to productivity, cost, time, quality, and sustainability. However, the concrete mix used for 3D printing has very high cement content, leading to a high carbon footprint of concrete 3D printed elements. The filler slab is a technique used to reduce raw material consumption by introducing materials like clay pots as filler. However, clay pots have high carbon footprints. Furthermore, a high level of supervision is needed to make sure that clay pots do not come into contact with rebar cages. Replacing clay pots with compressed polyethylene waste can help reduce the carbon footprint of 3D-printed slabs. This paper proposes an automated methodology to 3D print concrete slabs with recycled plastic waste as filler. A gantry-type 3D printer with an integrated pick-and-place function is used. A case study is used to bring out the savings in carbon footprint of the proposed system. A cradle-to-gate life cycle assessment is performed to compare three different scenarios: conventional slab, filler slab with clay pots, and filler slab with polyethylene (PE) waste. The case study results indicate that the proposed methodology can reduce the consumption of material and carbon emissions related to it. It also avoids the emissions due to incineration and improper management of polyethylene wastes. The findings of the paper provide a direction toward leveraging the benefits of concrete 3D printing and automation towards sustainable construction.

  • 5G in construction: from deployment to evaluation for robotic applications

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract A stable, low-latency, and high-bandwidth communication infrastructure is indispensable for effective teleoperation or automated control of construction machinery. Despite the vital importance of this aspect, limited exploration has been undertaken thus far. Our work presents a comprehensive study that begins by detailing the strategic deployment of a 5G network, underscoring its tailored features and functionalities designed specifically to meet the demanding requirements of construction sites. Through a series of diverse experiments involving different types of full-scale construction machines, we vividly demonstrate the tangible benefits of 5G technology in this context. Leveraging comparative studies with WiFi technology and real-world tests, this methodology highlights the improvements in communication facilitated by 5G networks. This holistic exploration not only fills a critical gap in understanding the potential of 5G in construction machinery communication but also offers a roadmap for leveraging this technology to further develop the construction industry.

  • Understanding stakeholders’ intention to use construction robots: a
           fuzzy-set qualitative comparative analysis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract User acceptance is crucial for successfully adopting robotic technologies in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) sector. Previous studies have focused on domestic, service, and industrial robots, leaving the construction domain unexplored. In this study, we set out to empirically understand how various dimensions of technology, environment, robot, and user lead to AEC stakeholders’ intention to use construction robots. We apply the fuzzy-set qualitative comparative analysis approach to capture the complexity of human behavior and the interdependencies across dimensions. For the data collection, we sampled 216 cases in Switzerland, Germany, and Austria evaluating three scenarios of human–robot interaction. Our analysis identifies three distinct user profiles—the lifelike robot user, the utilitarian robot user, and the lifelike-utilitarian robot user. The results show that human–robot peering may be a fundamental solution to increase user acceptance. By testing the effect of user characteristics, we also discover a lifelike-utilitarian type of robot that is more appealing to female AEC stakeholders. The study contributes to the construction robotics literature by providing tailored design and implementation strategies. It points to future research avenues such as user experience and social factors for exploring the impact of robotics and artificial intelligence in AEC.

  • TSLAM: a tag-based object-centered monocular navigation system for
           augmented manual woodworking

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: TimberSLAM (TSLAM) is an object-centered, tag-based visual self-localization and mapping (SLAM) system for monocular RGB cameras. It was specifically developed to support a robust and augmented reality pipeline for close-range, noisy, and cluttered fabrication sequences that involve woodworking operations, such as cutting, drilling, sawing, and screwing with multiple tools and end-effectors. By leveraging and combining multiple open-source projects, we obtain a functional pipeline that can map, three-dimensionally reconstruct, and finally provide a robust camera pose stream during fabrication time to overlay an execution model with its digital-twin model, even under close-range views, dynamic environments, and heavy scene obstructions. To benchmark the proposed navigation system under real fabrication scenarios, we produce a data set of 1344 closeups of different woodworking operations with multiple tools, tool heads, and varying parameters (e.g., tag layout and density). The evaluation campaign indicates that TSLAM is satisfyingly capable of detecting the camera’s millimeter position and subangular rotation during the majority of fabrication sequences. The reconstruction algorithm’s accuracy is also gauged and yields results that demonstrate its capacity to acquire shapes of timber beams with up to two preexisting joints. We have made the entire source code, evaluation pipeline, and data set open to the public for reproducibility and the benefit of the community. Graphic abstract

  • Upscaling earth formworks: 3D printing strategies for material optimised
           reinforced concrete structures

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract There is a growing need to understand how locally sourced earthen materials can be processed to build more efficiently and sustainably. Earthen formworks combined with 3D printing technologies present a unique opportunity for the concrete construction sector to address the wastefulness and complexity of custom formworks. The current state-of-the-art projects in academia and industry demonstrate that earthen formwork strategies effectively address this challenge, but remain burdened by upscaling issues such as production speed. This research bridges the gap by exploring strategies for 3D Printed earth formworks to efficiently produce structural elements using custom self-compacting and set-on-demand concrete mixtures. A first base earth mix is developed for reduced shrinkage and later modified via a plasticizer for increased green strength, forming the final mix. Two mix iterations are deployed in two corresponding strategies where concrete is cast into the earth formwork in a dry or plastic state. The methods highlighting the setups for 3D printing and procedures for appropriate material processing such as slump flow, shrinkage and rheology are presented. The results are explored via two column prototypes leading to a final demonstrator for a 2 m high reinforced concrete column. Conclusions are drawn on the implications of the two casting strategies, the current persisting challenges and the crucial next steps for development. Thus, the research provides a foundation for how clay formworks can be upscaled effectively for more sustainable production of complex concrete structures.

  • Integrating lean and robotics in the construction sector: a scientometric
           analysis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The integration of lean construction and construction robotics is an important research topic because it can significantly improve the construction industry’s efficiency, eliminate waste, and increase productivity. However, there is currently a scarcity of research on this subject, which makes it a key area for future studies. This study conducts a scientometric review analysis of lean construction and construction robotics, focusing on academic publications worldwide between 2012 and 2024. This study considers keywords, co-authors, co-citations, and country/region analyses. This study includes 842 articles from journals and conference papers obtained from Scopus, where 736 papers are related to lean construction, 194 are related to construction robotics, and 18 contain both lean construction and construction robotics. Network maps are built and analyzed to determine the major areas of interest within each field, be that lean construction or construction robotics. The study found that research in both domains is becoming more popular and that there is room for advancement in the intersection of lean construction and construction robotics, particularly around offsite construction. Based on these findings, it may be assumed that future studies including both subjects will grow.

  • Automating the repair of potholes using machine techniques and digitally
           crafted asphalt cartridges

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Potholes are a major problem on road networks as they reduce driving safety and pavement structural integrity. Current repair methods through filling are labour-intensive and unsafe to workers. This paper presents a new approach to filling potholes with less human intervention. The proposed method adopted a modified 3D printer as the automated pothole filling machine. The machine’s operational paramaters, such as extrusion speed, were optimised to maximise the extrusion rate of asphalt mixtures and enhance the efficiency of the filling process. A new digital design method was developed to quickly select the right aggregate-bitumen proportions for asphalt repair cartridges that meet desired performance standards such as extrusion rate, Marshall stability, Marshall flow, and air void contents. The quality of filled potholes was assessed by measuring the rutting depth. The machine fills exhibited 86% rutting resistance compared to hand fills, indicating its future potential to replace current manual methods.

           optimization

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Wire arc additive manufacturing (WAAM) integrates benefits of automation and mass customization to improve efficiency through near-net part production. While WAAM is well researched, there remain significant challenges as the complex relationship between robot, welder, and process parameters can lead to inaccuracy in geometry and variations in material properties. This research proposes a novel framework for quantifying the WAAM process and proposes dynamic adaptive strategies for improving production. This paper introduces the concept of an equivalent contact surface (ECS) for quantifying the additive welding process. Adaptive methods are then identified to optimize WAAM production. In conclusion, this paper provides an outlook on future research directions for continuing the development of this dynamic WAAM process.

  • Improving autonomous robotic navigation using IFC files

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The navigation of robotic systems in construction sites often relies on sensor data from the robot. While mapping and navigation protocols such as simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) are quite useful for navigation, they often require a preliminary mapping of the site, which is usually done manually. Waypoint generation for certain tasks, such as 3D scanning, cannot be done before obtaining said preliminary map, which can be tedious. Building information model (BIM) files contain rich semantic information about buildings; therefore, it is worth considering an approach where the information in BIM is leveraged to minimize the need for manual preliminary mapping of sites. This study proposes a methodology to get information from BIM—in the form of IFC files—to an autonomous robotic system (ARS) in the form of navigation maps, simulation environments, JSON files with useful semantic information, and proposed waypoints for stop-and-go missions. The schedule element present in IFC is used to generate obstacle maps relevant to the level of construction progress at the time the ARS is deployed. The results are validated with a case study of the entire process from the IFC file input to the waypoint generation for an ARS to complete a 3D reconstruction of an indoor space.

In this research, we aim to address these limitations by advancing the teleoperated machine, BROKK 170, toward a developed semi-autonomous concept. We propose a framework for robot-assisted deconstruction, exploring the communication and sensing systems of the prototype deconstruction robot, along with its capabilities. Additionally, field tests are conducted to evaluate the performance of the proposed approach in real-world scenarios. The potentials and limitations drawn from these initial results are discussed.

  • Minimal machines: augmented reality for filament-construction of partially
           ordered systems in architecture

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Wearable augmented reality-supported technology allows for tracking and informing the interrelation of craftspeople with the architectural structure they are working on. Especially when dealing with partially ordered rather than fully ordered material systems, this feedback is relevant since toolpaths cannot be established a priori but rather evolve during the architectural construction process itself. On the one hand, partially ordered material systems have the potential of adapting to conditions both internal and external to the structure. On the other hand, they can be considered as structures that are constantly evolving: instead of demolishing a building, it could be continuously repaired. While a large range of investigations involve robots equipped with sensory feedback to address this topic, only few studies have attempted to equip humans with a minimal amount of technology so as to harness human sensory intelligence, merely enhancing it with technology. This article introduces the current state of the field of augmented reality and partially ordered systems in architectural construction with a focus on filament-laying processes. Then, it presents a newly developed framework for augmented construction with designed filaments for partially ordered fabrics in architecture, encompassing both the wearable hardware and the custom-developed software. The principles of systems in human-made filament-based architecture are introduced and set in relation to similar role model systems in animal-made architecture. Then, three experiments of increasing complexity investigate the human-to-machine, the machine-to-human and the machine-to-human-to-machine communication. A final integrative demonstrator serves to investigate the framework for augmented reality in construction on a full architectural scale. As an outlook, areas of further research—such as the integration of artificial intelligence into the feedback loop—are discussed.

  • Non-planar granular 3D printing

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Most approaches to 3D printing at various scales are layer based, meaning they start with a 3D CAD model that is sliced into planar print paths to be translated to machine code. However, this approach entails a number of drawbacks, such as slow printing speeds, limited build volumes, allowable geometric properties, and material diversity. To overcome these limitations, the authors have developed a novel additive manufacturing process called Non-Planar Granular Printing (NGP). Compared to its layer-based counterpart, NGP enables non-planar 3D printing by selectively binding reusable granular particles to create free-form structures. In doing so, NGP leverages traditional powder-based additive manufacturing processes. However, instead of enclosing the extruded compounds within a three-axis layer-based system, NPG combines multi-axis robotic deposition capabilities with customizable build volume parameters, which drastically improves print speed, scalability and material versatility. The result is a process whose main advantage is to enable the rapid production of support-free and complex geometric forms using a wide range of materials in granular form. This paper introduces and analyzes a series of benchmark experiments conducted to demonstrate the practical workflow, general output capabilities, and volume-material limitations of the system. The research also lays a foundation of non-planar 3D extrusion that enables material transitions for functional gradience capabilities.

  • A guided approach for utilizing concrete robotic 3D printing for the
           architecture, engineering, and construction industry

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The emerging field of robotic 3D printing offers practical alternatives to conventional building methods that are currently used in the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) industry. Robotic 3D printing has many advantages over the conventional construction as it reduces human error, is relatively inexpensive, and opens the door to the creative complex designs while reducing the amount of expertise required to complete the construction process. At present, there is a shortage of resources offering guidance on how to utilize the available technology. Thus, it is often difficult for researchers and practitioners alike to find the right information and make informed decisions relative to their specific applications. In this paper, we provide such a resource by gathering data from previously constructed projects in the form of a categorical study, which paves the way for accessing the most recent information regarding the robotic 3D printing technology of interest. We illustrate the latest methods and techniques used in the field and describe the hardware used. We also use the resulting classification methods to present a decision-making workflow to streamline the process of selecting the most appropriate approach. We also examined and performed a detailed analysis on three case studies of prominent buildings that have been constructed using 3D printing technology. The categorical parameters were selected carefully to form a clear, informative distinction between the buildings. Printing method and motion type were the most important parameters when it comes to robotic 3D printing. A new database was created and demonstrated to elucidate the types of the additive manufacturing that can be used. By analyzing the data, we hope to facilitate the development of new structures as they relate to 3D printing in the AEC industry.

In this context, LSAM offers the potential to optimize form, reduce material consumption, and speed up the construction process. The project includes both a theoretical study of scissor structures and practical feasibility tests, culminating in the design and manufacture of a full-scale printed prototype. Computational design tools were used to analyze and compare different designs and simulate manufacturing processes in a virtual environment. Through this case study, we provide a detailed account of our journey from design to fabrication and offer a critical reflection on the findings.

      Abstract: Abstract This paper discusses the design, fabrication, and assembly of the ‘Eggshell Pavilion’, a reinforced concrete structure fabricated using 3D printed thin shell formwork. Formworks for columns and slabs were printed from recycled plastic using a pellet extruder mounted to a robotic arm. The formworks were cast and demoulded, and the finished elements were assembled into a pavilion, showcasing the architectural potential of 3D printed formwork. The Eggshell Pavilion was designed and fabricated within the scope of a design studio at ETH Zurich. The structure was designed using a fully parametric design workflow that allowed for incorporating changes into the design until the fabrication. The pavilion consists of four columns and floor slabs. Each column and floor slab is reinforced with conventional reinforcing bars. Two different methods are used for casting the columns and floor slabs. The columns are cast using ‘Digital casting systems’, a method for the digitally controlled casting of fast-hardening concrete. Digital casting reduces the hydrostatic pressure exerted on the formwork to a minimum, thereby enabling the casting of tall structures with thin formwork. The floor slabs are cast with a commercially available concrete mix, as the pressure exerted on the formwork walls is lower than for the columns. In this research, 3D printed formwork is combined with traditional reinforcing, casting, and assembly methods, bringing the technology closer to an industrial application.
