Group Introduction

The Deep Co-intelligent Architecture research group at the Institute of Future Human Habitats led by Assist. Prof. Peter Búš focuses on research in advanced design computation and digital fabrication strategies for architectural scenarios engaging human and artificial intelligence. It develops design-to-production workflows where human intelligence and technology are linked to generate spatially unique scenarios, production-efficient building processes, and effective architectural solutions for human habitats. The ongoing research employs robotic technologies as a part of the production workflow for co-intelligent assembly methods driven by human intelligence and AI, encompassing a kit of parts and discrete components for adaptive spatial scenarios or craftsmanship.

Research task and job description

The research will focus on developing a custom-built cable-driven robotic system (6 to 8-DOF larger-scale platform) and particular end-effectors for flexible construction methods and strategies integrating custom design of kit-of-parts and discrete components for adaptive assembly systems. The robot will be operating with smaller-scale components, possibly to be scaled up. The system will integrate an industrial modular structure as an exoskeleton and robotic components with the operational control unit to drive and program the moveable parts. The platform will be developed as an open framework allowing scalability for additional interaction with human users/designers/builders and cooperation with industrial collaborative robots and/or independent customized construction robotics as moveable and flexible building blocks. The cable-driven system will also be linked with a mixed-reality user interface, allowing intelligent and safe control of building scenarios. The task includes designing, prototyping, and building a platform, its performance analyses, and optimization. Communicate with internal and external experts and suppliers, as well as reporting and publication activities.

If applicable, communicate with internal and external experts, manufacturers, and suppliers. 

Report on a weekly or bi-weekly basis on the progress of the platform development, analysis, and optimization. 

Communication with colleagues with different backgrounds and expertise (architecture, computational design, computer science, digital fabrication). 

Deliverability of the platform as a physical prototype, custom build small pre-prototypes, ability to program, simulate, and deliver the production tasks, publishing activities (conference attendances, symposia, journal articles, patents development, exhibitions, if applicable).
