A Framework for Integrating Multiple Construction Robots

  • W. L. Whittaker
  • E. Bandari

Abstract

This paper presents a speculative framework that embodies multiple robots carrying out construction tasks. We first discuss the nature of construction tasks and the need for multiple automatons. We then present the major elements of our framework: host, automatons, and human interfaces. Finally, we explain how the framework enhances modeling, interpretation, and strategic and tactical planning.
