Motivation & Impact
The HEPHAESTUS project explores the innovative use of robots and autonomous systems in construction, a field where the incidence of such technologies is minor to non-existent. The project aims to increase market readiness and acceptance of key developments in cable robots and curtain walls. Over the project lifetime it shall produce fundamental technical validation outside the lab, and deliver significant results such as:
– A prototype cable robot, designed to build, repair and maintain a building façade
– A prototype building and curtain wall system, suitable for robot assembly
– A business plan for widespread commercial adoption.
