A research team including the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed a cable robot. It is supposed to be able to build, repair and maintain building facades. Euronews reports on initial trials with the robot in central Spain.
The robot is part of the EU project HEPHAESTUS, which promotes research into robots and autonomous systems in the construction industry. With the help of eight cables, the prototype can turn and move in all directions. In Spain, the researchers have set up a hundred square meter test stand for the first tests, which is supposed to simulate a three-story building facade.
