Conceptual design of a flooring robot: development methodology and results
Automation in Construction 4 (3) (1995) pp. 225-238
The paper describes the methodology used in the deveIopment of the Surface Horizontal Autonomous Multipurpose Interior Robot (SHAMIR). The main emphasis in this paper is on the graphic simulation stage, which permits the analysis of parameters normally associated with detailed design, as early as the conceptual design stage. The performance specifications arc described and the conceptual design is specified. The simulation results determined the optimal joint velocity. 10(R) mm/s, and SHAMIR productivity in floor tile setting, at least 6 sq.m/hr., which is three times as high as that of the manual method. These results arc encouraging enough to continue developing the robot, and at the same time they appear to prove the effectiveness of the methodology.
