For keeping aligned with the planned schedule the Bots2ReC met for the yearly Consortium meeting at the second prototype in Barcelona.
Dissemination and exploitation of the robotic use case is our aim at the EU Industry Day 2019 in Brussels. The feedback about our application is positive and some interesting contacts have been made.
The Bots2ReC consortium proudly presents the full processing unit of the second prototype. It combines all the experience from the first prototype and answers some open questions with a versatile setup. Everything especially targeted for real construction sites in normal flats and apartment houses.
Combining reach, payload and mobility for versatile construction tasks within one robotic arm is a challenging effort. For the removal jobs at hand, this beautiful robotic arm was developed to fulfil the requirements for asbestos removal.
As construction robotics means dealing with tough conditions, a huge number of small and larger improvements were possible due to the learning from protoype version one. The next prototype contains a redundant robotic arm and omni-directional mobile bases. Just see the attached video for an idea of the assembly in CAD.
