Four major strands of development are reported; the experimental robot cell for masonry tasking currently being built is described, the operational tolerances required are established and the means of achieving them discussed, an account is given of work undertaken on the production, dispensing and application of bond materials and a CAD model for vision sensing for use in design and construction planning is outlined. Although the initial development is concerned with the robotisation of masonry tasks, the techniques being developed will have wider applications in relation to inspection and repair.
