Associated Project: From Digital Design to Human Robot Collaborative Masonry Construction – Building 4.0 CRC

Project based at

Lead Partner Organisation

Imagine humans working alongside collaborative robots (cobots), laying bricks to build urgently needed homes for the growing Australian population. This human robot collaboration project will develop a digital design to physical construction workflow for masonry construction using cobots to be employed alongside labourers. Using masonry bricks, the project elevates the efficiency of building brick walls which are essential building elements in the housing industry. Based on observational studies of masonry construction of highly skilled labourers, the project aims to train cobots working alongside human workers to pick and place masonry bricks with precision.

This project is funded through the Building 4.0 CRC.
