The Cambridge Handbooks in Construction Robotics series focuses on the implementation of automation and robot technology to renew the construction industry. Volume 1-4 are available now. Volume 5 will be available in 2019.
Volume 1: Robot-Oriented Design and Management introduces the design, innovation, and management methodologies that are key to the realization and implementation of the advanced concepts and technologies presented in the subsequent volumes.
Volume 2: Robotic Industrialization outlines technologies in building component manufacturing based on building materials and large-scale prefabrication holding the potential to deliver complex components and products which are introduced and discussed.
Volume 3: Construction Robots shows that single task construction robots can be used for a variety of tasks ranging from digging, facade painting, interior finishing to inspection, maintenance and deconstruction.
Volume 4: Site Automation extends the new technology of robotics in building-component manufacturing and construction introduced in earlier volumes to on-site structured environments and on-site automated factories.
Volume 5: Ambient Integrated Robotics focuses on the relationship between improvement of production processes and enhanced product performance, including robot-oriented design and management, and usability and customer inclusion within the industry.
