The upcoming ICD/ITKE Research Pavilion 2014-15 investigates the robotically-controlled placement of carbon- and glassfiber filaments onto full scale pneumatic formwork as a novel and material efficient on site fabrication strategy for light weight constructions. A major challenge in developing this technique is the constantly changing shape of the pneumatic formwork under the influence of external climate conditions and live applied loading during the fiber placement process. Therefore the ICD ITKE team was provided with a Kuka KR 120 R3900 K ultra equipped with the Kuka Robot Sensor Interface, fascilitating online path corrections of the robot based on iterative sensor data input.
