In the building industry, individually-tailored mechanical systems still dominate the field of construction work on bridges, factory halls, and buildings, as well as preventive maintenance work and repairs in various applications. Recently a strong demand to develop and integrate new robot controllers and mechanical systems for the building industry can be observed. AEG developed a new control system for such highly flexible handling systems. Those systems can consist of mobile or stationary robots, small machines with few axis or manipulators with up to 12 axis, large reach and payload. Many software functions are integrated in the robot controller to increase flexibility and performance for the end user. The first projects of computerized manipulators and handling systems have already been successfully completed in an interdisciplinary cooperation with the leading companies and institutes in this field.
