The Master in Robotics and Advanced Construction (MRAC) seeks to train a new generation of interdisciplinary professionals who are capable of facing our growing need for a more sustainable and optimised construction ecosystem. The Master is focused on the emerging design and market opportunities arising from novel robotic and advanced manufacturing systems.

Through a mixture of seminars, workshops, and studio projects, the master programme challenges the traditional processes in the Construction Sector. It investigates how advances in robotics and digital fabrication tools change the way we build and develop processes and design tools for such new production methods.

What if you can control your Cobot with only hand gestures and you can work effortlessly? That’s what we came up with this experiment of using Multi agent systems to control the engagement of a collaborative robot (ur10e).Our workshop highlights an innovative approach to controlling cobots using hand gestures. This method aims to facilitate effortless … Read more

 Building Together, One Word at a Time AIM The aim of this project is to enhance human-robot collaboration through the development of a user-friendly system that creates an inclusive environment. Text-to-speech (TTS) and speech-to-text (STT) systems enable humans and robots to communicate in anintuitive and engaging way. Relevance One major issue was that the human … Read more

Hey Jarvis, let’s Collaborate!

This project explores a framework for Human-Robot Collaboration (HRC) and behavioural fabrication, focusing on constructing a Jenga-like tower using small timber blocks. Using the Agent-Based Modeling system (ABxM) from the Institute for Computational Design and Construction (ICD), a communication network was established integrating a human participant, a computer vision system, and an interactive audio interface. … Read more
