Construction Games for Robots


Bachelor / Master / Diplom


15-02-6464 (WF, also FM B)

The seminar will introduce students to a complete design-to-production pipeline for modular assembly, integrating construction sets design, robotic assembly techniques, computer vision and human-machine interaction strategies.The aim is the development of modular construction sets to be assembled collaboratively by robots and humans. This will require developing construction sets and combinatorial rules which allow to continuously edit the design during the assembly process, creating a more direct interaction between robotic fabrication and design decisions.The final outcome will be 1:1 sculptures based on the designed construction sets and collaboratively assembled by robots and students.
