Building the future with robotics – Jammu Kashmir Latest News | Tourism


Sydney, October 31: As part of a search for greener and cheaper buildings, innovations in robotics are being watched closely.
The construction industry – a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions – urgently needs to rebuild into a smarter, greener and more efficient industry without breaking the bank.
The solution may lie in the decline of the auto industry. Six-axis robots, often used in car manufacturing, are being introduced to the world of architecture, manufacturing and construction, with promising results.
Robots can be used in all stages of manufacturing and manufacturing processes. On construction sites, robots are used for automated tasks, such as masonry, 3D printing and the manufacture of wooden modules. There is still work to be done before robots become commonplace on construction sites – their unpredictable nature (uneven surfaces and constant movement of people, machinery and materials) poses more challenges to deploying a robot.
And some safety, cost and skill application issues have hindered its wider implementation. There is always a gap between the available technology and the knowledge of how to exploit it. And, given the power and danger associated with such machines, there is apprehension to embrace the technology until the gap closes.
Yet robotic integration is a matter of when, not if. Robots already have a role to play in the next iteration of digitalization of architectural practice. Advanced manufacturing software and tools – computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) – are part of the digitization of architectural practice.
Digital tools are natural extensions from design in 3D modeling and scripting environments to manufacturing, and now reliable and flexible industrial arm robots. With manufacturing and construction tools adopted for robot movement, standard construction materials and processes (such as for wood, brick, or concrete) are reconsidered, and robots can effortlessly perform a wide variety of tasks. not repetitive.
Pioneering work has been done here by robotics laboratories within academic institutions, as well as by private robot developers. Recent research on building standards and methods with industrial robotic arms has resulted in new methods of masonry, fluid deposition, cutting and assembly of wood sheets, custom welding of steel elements or tile cutting.
As technology evolves, these robots are becoming more affordable, accessible and usable.
Two factors are likely to fuel the increased integration of robotic systems in the building sector. Architecture, engineering and construction are all facing a money and skilled labor crisis, as well as the onset of climate change. The implementation of robotics in building is helping bring the sector closer to Industry 4.0 – a fourth industrial revolution – which focuses on conducting business with reduced resources, emissions and waste.
Apart from advanced technologies such as Internet of Things, cloud computing, 3D printing, augmented reality and virtual reality, many of these technologies are linked to manufacturing and production processes by connecting digital data to data physical. This allows production processes from design to manufacturing to be closely linked to digital technologies, enabling construction to modernize and progress.
The implementation of automation and robotics goes beyond machines on the ground. Given the diversity of teams involved in commercial construction (architects, engineers, consultants, and onsite/offsite contractors), technologies that enable the rapid dissemination of higher quality construction information are attractive.
A kind of automated system that can give data-based insights into material cost, labor, and production protocols, or offer advice on dynamic issues on a construction site, is a technology that would greatly benefit infrastructure projects when or if the right group gets off the ground.
Part of this next-gen technology is the use of virtual environments, digital replicas of buildings, or designs that grant its creators more power in testing, building, and editing. Increasingly, buildings will have a digital twin: a virtual model designed to accurately mirror a physical object.
Building in-factory file capabilities into the architecture will help manufacturers engage in design-driven production. Intellectual property and training for digital twin-based AI-based fabrication is likely to be an important part of the architecture industry.
In this scenario, digital twins could not only transmit data to manufacturing, but robot manufacturing could turn into robotic maintenance. If successful, our notions of human-robot collaboration would deepen – integrating into building technologies such as industrial arms, drones, robot swarms and augmented support via interactive and haptic interfaces.
Over the next decade, the digital twin system will not only affect buildings, but also urban structures, their infrastructure systems and data networks. Data on building performance under changing environmental conditions will allow for a better understanding of individual buildings.
It will also allow a better overview of complex data for building collectives and urban landscapes that can react to extreme changes, such as extreme heat, floods and bushfires.
The robot systems will be used for continuous data feedback, calculation and simulation, analysis and evaluation which will help humans to assess building stock, construction site and worker capacity, resource management , the building materials passport for circular performance and as a direct route to reducing the carbon footprint of the construction industry.
