title Robotic Swarms in Architectural Design - A communication platform bridging design analysis and robotic construction
source Werner, L and Koering, D (eds.), Anthropologic: Architecture and Fabrication in the cognitive age - Proceedings of the 38th eCAADe Conference - Volume 2, TU Berlin, Berlin, Germany, 16-18 September 2020, pp. 453-462
summary The research work fueling this paper examines ?ptimal approaches for bridging design analysis and robotic spatial construction. In this context, the paper presents the development of a unified platform for managing a swarm of robotic fabrication agents. The goal is the development of a streamlined methodology that guides the conversion of a design model into construction data code that can be assigned to the robotic swarm for fabrication.The work focuses on bridging architectural design platforms and distributed automation processes, on the one hand, and on the other, it targets the development of a functional management tool for adjusting and optimizing fabrication. A crucial parameter considered is the monitoring and assessment of all stages of the proposed process. This involves a constant exchange of information between the various actors, such as the swarm agents, the construction data and the designer - user. As a result, the construction process is treated as a constant reassessment and re-adjustment of the design parameters rather than the linear result of the original set of construction data. Therefore, the proposed system cannot be described as reactive, but acts responsively in a ``sensible'' manner.
