We are happy to announce the final presentation of our third batch of students of the international Master of Construction & Robotics (CR). Once again, we invite a top-class industry jury to represent the board members of the CR programme and our premium partners of the Center Construction Robotics, to help guide the concepts and the developments on the reference construction site on the RWTH Aachen Campus West.
Students of the Master’s program Construction & Robotics as well as employees of the Chair for Individualized Production of RWTH Aachen University (under the direction of Prof. Dr.-techn. Sigrid Brell-Cokcan) visited PORR’s largest construction project to date, FAIR (i.e. the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research), in Darmstadt.
A particle accelerator with a 1.1 km long accelerator tunnel and buildings above is being built on a 20 ha site. PORR is responsible for the shell construction of the northern section of the facility. After an introduction to the construction project for heavy ion research by the head of technical office Thomas Beckmann and Saleem Javed, the students were guided through the construction site.
The dimensions of the overall project become apparent, for example, by the 6-meter-thick, massive reinforced concrete structures and 25 km of cable pipes, and present a challenge for construction site logistics.
Special thanks for making the site visit possible to the innovation team of PORR AG, Karina Schiefer, Lina Wallmann and Estefania Betancourt. Also, a big thanks for guiding the construction site tour to PORR GmbH&Co KGaA, Thomas Beckmann, Karim El-Joudi, Saleem Javed, Berge Kuhn and the whole project team. We wish them great success for the further execution.
We are very grateful to our Premium Member PORR AG for inviting the Master Construction&Robotics students to the impressive construction site of FAIR Darmstadt. Learning from experts in the construction industry rounds up the curriculum in the best way!
The Chair for Individualized Production is proud to be one of the five finalists for this year’s KUKA Innovation Award.
The COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing are increasing our reliance on remote work. However, the impact of online tools for the construction industry is limited. Team CRC from the Chair for Individualized Production / RWTH Aachen University & Robots in Architecture Research is therefore integrating automation technology into online collaboration. Cloud Remote Control enables users to run robots, monitor processes and adapt tool paths from the comfort of their home or international office. This increases accessibility to worldwide robotic production, adding layers of Industrie 4.0 device communication and artificial intelligence to path planning. In this way, Cloud Remote Control empowers teams to remain safely at a distance while still collaborating closely on automated construction.
We are happy to announce the final presentation of our second batch of students of the international Master of Construction & Robotics (CR). Once again, we invite a top-class industry jury to represent the board members of the CR programme and our premium members of the Center Construction Robotics, to help guide the concepts and the developments on the reference construction site on the RWTH Aachen Campus West.
We look forward to seeing you all and to the presentations.
