This paper discusses the role of product modelling technology in construction robotics control. Information models for the representation of construction product and process information enable more intelligent behaviour of construction robot tools, because construction knowledge can be transferred into the robots. In this paper an information model is presented for product as well as process information. The power of such a model is explained with help of an example of a tilting robot which is simulated in a robot simulation system. With the simulation system we also demonstrate robot independent control via application interfaces which allow one process plan to be interpreted by different robot configurations.
