Piping along a redundant arm can be a tedious job. Finally a solution for the stiff aspiration pipe was found to enable high suction power until the removal tool.
Entering a construction site is having its own requirements. As the process requires a tandem of mobile robots, the entering phase of different levels or even the site itself should be managed unit per unit. Therefore a plug-and-play bridge setup is enabled to connect and disconnect the tandem whenever it is necessary.
On construction sites lidar sensors based on laser technology may deliver bad results due to dust and particles in the air. Therefore a localization approach based on radar sensors is developed. Just see how beautiful live data of an automation process can be!
Closing the control loop with multiple feedback for the removal tasks is a key point for the removal operations. Using this lab setup it is possible to gather the necessary process data regarding forces, radar distances and compliant movements.
The first unit is the processing unit of the tandem to fulfil the real refurbishment task. Due to the high power demands and the central aspiration system, the rear unit is carrying the aspiration pipe and the power cord. The full tandem setup is visible in the picture above!
