Breaking digital boundaries together: The Center Construction Robotics is closing the digital gaps in the construction industry from planning through production to implementation. An interdisciplinary, international consortium of companies and faculty spanning institutes of RWTH Aachen University are developing and designing intelligent processes, machines and business models along the entire construction value chain.
We jointly research and develop key technologies in hardware, software and process design. Beyond the indirect planning processes, we aim to address, rethink and redesign the entire construction site.
The knowledge gained in this way serves as a catalyst for the digitalization and automation of the construction site of the future. By implementing key technologies, the Center Construction Robotics aids its consortium in becoming the leaders of the digital disruption in construction.
The sustainability project ROBETON convinces the jury in the category of re-search and misses the victory with just one percentage point.
The Center Construction Robotics presents research highlights of the past two years.
The reference construction site was initially located at Campus West in February 2020 and has now been transferred to Campus Melaten after more than two years in September 2022: It is now located right in the heart of the 5G Industry Campus Europe and is part of the research infrastructure for validating 5G in production. More information about the reference site can be found here.

Spanning a wide range of disciplines, we work together with a consortium of industrial companies. Through the mutual exchange and commitment of each individual, we want to create a trustful foundation for sustainable and interdisciplinary cooperation. It is our mission to practice new forms of interdisciplinary cooperation and to network our community of users, enablers and technology suppliers along the construction value chain.
In addition to the frequent exchange of information as well as the consortial research and development projects, our members also benefit from new training offers and initiatives regarding the development of new standards for digital construction. The digitization of construction requires not only new technologies, but also qualified employees for safe work on buildings.
