建房机器人来了:两天可建成一栋别墅

#科技头条#【建房机器人来了:两天可建成一栋别墅】机器人也进军搬砖界啦。这款由澳大利亚发明家研制的机器人一小时可搬1000块砖,一天24小时连续工作的话一年能建150栋房屋。在用3D扫描周围后,它能精确地计算出在何处放置砖头,以及是否需要切割砖块。而且,这款机器人还会使用水泥和粘合剂哦。

Meet the robot BUILDER: Fully automated bricklaying machine can create an entire house in just two days

  • The robot, called Hadrian, was developed by an Australian inventor
  • It can lay 1,000 bricks an hour and work around the clock, 24 hours a day
  • A robotic 'hand' lays the brick, and it can also apply mortar
  • It 3D scans its surroundings to work out exactly where to place bricks 

 

For 6,000 years, bricklaying has remained largely the same - it still relies on slow, methodical placements by humans.

But one inventor wants to turn the world of bricklaying on its head with his robot, which can out-perform even the most motivated of builders.

Called Hadrian, it can lay 1,000 bricks and hour and work around the clock - and could apparently build 150 homes a year.

 

Called Hadrian - named after the wall - the fully-automated robot was created by Australian inventor Mark Pivac, who founded Fastbrick Robotics.

‘People have been laying bricks for about 6,000 years and ever since the industrial revolution, they have tried to automate the bricklaying process,’ he told Perth Now.

‘We’re at a technological nexus where a few different technologies have got to the level where it’s now possible to do it, and that’s what we’ve done.’

 

The robot has a boom 92ft (28 metres) long that is connected to its main body.

At the end is a robotic ‘hand’ that can grab bricks, pick them up, and place them down in sequence. 

A 3D computer-aided design (CAD) is used to work out the shape of the house or structure required, and the robot then calculates where each brick should go.

Mortar or adhesive is also deliver under pressure to the hand of the arm and applied to the brick, so no external human element is required.

It can even leave spaces for wiring and plumbing, and scans and cuts the bricks if they need to be re-shaped.

The project, ten years in the making and with $7 million (£4.5 million) spent on it so far, would supposedly be able to create a house in just two days.

It could work by itself 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and although other aspects of the house would require human intervention, it is perhaps a sign of things to come in construction.

The product will be marketed first in Western Australia, before expanding to the rest of the country and ultimately the whole world.

Mr Pivac noted that he had 'nothing against bricklayers', and simply wanted to improve the process in which houses were made.

He says his robot could help attract younger people to the profession.
