Examines a research program into the use of automation and robotics in masonry building. The four main objectives of the project were to establish the requirements for the application of robotics in masonry construction; construct a prototype robot; develop the operation software system; and evaluate suitable blocks for construction using robots. Describes the construction of the prototype robot cell and the research methods used and concludes that combining the research findings with work elsewhere it should be possible to achieve a commercially viable robotic solution for masonry and similar tasks on the construction site.
