Modular Interior Finishing and Renovation Robot System


Solutions:

The robots were composed by a modular system:
A basic modul, which adopts movement & orientation

Additional work modules, which could be installed on the basic modul

Work modul (drilling & plugging):

  • Drill machine
  • Wall drill
  • Vacuum system
  • Cross table for exact positioning
  • Form feed unit

Basic modul (movement & positioning):

  • Suitable for on-site use track vehicle with electric motor, barrier detecting sensors, orientation by infrared camera & a system for image data processing

 

Opreating sequence:

  • Preparation: Calibration of drilling points, bottom fracturing by chalk line
  • Crude positioning of the robot by manual control
  • Robot moves automatically to first drill point along chalk line
  • Automatic exact positioning
  • Vertical movement & interlocking to the floor
  • Drilling
  • Replacement of the suspending brackets into wall driller & assembling
  • Lowering, moving to next drilling point
