RobétArmé: Human-robot collaborative construction system for shotcrete digitization and automation through advanced perception, cognition, mobility and additive manufacturing skills


About project

Digitization and automation have become increasingly important in our daily lives and in industries around the world. Due to their advantages, organizations around the world are expressing demands for their new implementations.

The construction sector is fundamental to modern society, from urban and rural construction and renovation to repair, maintenance and disaster relief.

However, it has not yet seen many innovations using digitization and automation. The EU-funded RobetArme project aims to reverse this trend by introducing its human-robot collaborative construction system to automate the emerging technology of shotcrete construction.

Project objectives

Provide mobile manipulators for collaborative construction

To develop a cognitive robotic platform addressing the entire application chain of shotcrete for autonomous construction, maintenance and infrastructure monitoring activities

Release customised advanced modelling tools for building and construction information models for rapid and greener implementation of automated construction activities

Develop cognitive Digital Twin and simulation environments for construction monitoring, diagnostics and orchestration activities.


Concrete actions

RoBétArmé aims for a radical change in construction 4.0 by automating particularly laborious construction activities in all stages of application of shotcrete (ShotCrete).
To this end, RoBétArmé will supply mobile manipulators for collaborative construction, consisting of a:

  • Manipolatore per la ricognizione delle ispezioni (IRR) per affrontare la modellazione rapida e di alta precisione e il rinforzo delle barre attraverso la produzione additiva di metallo nella fase iniziale.
  • Manipolatore mobile Shotcrete e Finishing (SFR) per l’applicazione autonoma di calcestruzzo proiettato e la finitura delle superfici rispettivamente nella fase di costruzione e di completamento.
