Telechiric, semi-autonomous and autonomous heavy plant is finding an increasing role in applications such as construction, sub-sea work and decommissioning. There is a need for improved operator interfaces for such plant, and hence for rapid-prototyping tools which link the development of the...
The paper describes a new approach to programming construction robots, using virtual reality (VR) techniques. The new approach is needed because both traditional and new methods of programming industrial robots, described in the paper, have specific drawbacks, which become crucial in the...
This work presents a tool for analysing the figurative structure of architectural façades. The procedure begins by singling out the elementary shapes which make up the façade image; it detects and identifies them as “area objects”, even if present in combination in virtual or mental form...
In this paper, a shield control system software to balance soil pressure on the shield cutting face is described. This software, which adjusts the speed of the shield jack and the speed of the screw conveyor, is based on a neural network. The basic structure of the control system software...
A method is presented by which camera orientation relative to the pipe axis may be recovered from a single frame of a survey video of a small-bore brick sewer. If it can be fully recovered, the pipe axis provides part of a frame of reference within which 3D descriptions of sewer shape may be...
A radical departure from generally accepted concepts in construction robotics is proposed in this paper. A new process derived from the emerging field of additive manufacturing processes is investigated for its potential effectiveness in construction automation. In essence, complex assemblies of...
