How Augmented Reality and a Robot Arm Could Give Construction a Leg Up
“Project CRoW is Vasey and Kyjanek’s attempt to deliver the construction industry’s new “wow.” The Collaborative Robotic Workbench (CRoW) combines a generative-designworkflow with a KUKA LBR iiwa robotic arm, which has a gripper claw to pick up, move, and place components. The project was developed for the 2018 KUKA Innovation Awards, a yearly robotics competition with the theme of real-world interaction.
But the secret sauce is the augmented reality (AR) user headset. With a view of the materials and construction, AR lets the user digitally plan the next piece’s placement, trying alternatives and assessing data beforehand. The robotic arm’s precision movements position the next component exactly; the user simply fastens it with a nail gun…”
