The Construction Robotics Center continuously works on projects in which we support and advise our members on their way to digital and automatic construction. Potential areas of application are constantly growing and changing as the construction industry moves towards digitalization and automation. The topics and roadmap of the Construction Robotics Center are therefore continuously developed by the consortium of registered members.
We are currently working on the following projects with our partners from industry, science and politics.

The first Construction Robotics Center project was published in January 2019 and is a study on “Industry 4.0 in the cement industry – status quo and prospects” for the German cement industry. The study was commissioned by the Social Policy Working Group of the German Cement Industry, (Sozialpolitische Arbeitsgemeinschaft der deutschen Zementindustrie (SPADZ) gemeinsam mit der Industriegewerkschaft Bauen–Agrar–Umwelt (IG BAU), der Industriegewerkschaft Bergbau, Chemie, Energie (IG BCE) sowie dem Verein Deutscher Zementwerke (VDZ)).

The study was carried out by an interdisciplinary team of RWTH scientists from the Chair for  Individualized Production for Architecture, the WZL Machine Tool Laboratory, represented by the Chair of Production Metrology and Quality Management and the Institute of Building Materials Research, represented by the Chair of Building Materials Science.

For details of the study, please refer to the press release under News or the VDZ homepage.
