Human-machine collaboration in computational design and robotic fabrication, ETH Zürich, 2018-2022
PhD Forschungsprojekt
Ziel dieser Forschung ist es, Konzepte für die Zusammenarbeit zwischen Mensch und Maschine in den Bereichen Architektur, digitalem Design und robotische Herstellung zu erforschen. Im Besonderen wird die Verknüpfung von implizitem menschlichem Wissen mit expliziten Entscheidungsprozessen automatisierter Systeme erarbeitet. Die Forschungsarbeit konzentriert sich auf die Entwicklung von Konzepten und Werkzeugen zur "Human Augmentation", welche für die Zusammenarbeit zwischen Mensch und Maschine erforderlich sind, um nicht standardmässige Fertigungsaufgaben im architektonischen Massstab auszuführen. Dieses Projekt untersucht, wie die kognitiven Fähigkeiten und das implizite Wissen des Menschen die Präzision, Unmittelbarkeit und Geschwindigkeit von Maschinen erhöhen können, um entweder unmögliche oder nicht nachhaltige Aufgaben umsetzbar zu machen.

Augmented Bricklaying:
As a first case study, a complex brick-building facade for a winery in Greece is being constructed through augmented manual bricklaying using key principles of this research.

The second case study explores the potential of human-robot collaboration for the in-place assembly of complex building wooden structures by using a custom-made object-aware mobile AR interface.

IRoP - interactive robotic plastering:
The third case study is a system enabling designers and skilled workers to engage intuitively with an in-situ robotic plastering process. The research combines interactive design tools, an augmented reality interface, and a robotic spraying system.

Extended Reality Collaboration(ERC):
The fourth case study presents a mixed-reality immersive collaboration system that enables bi-directional communication and data exchange between on-site and off-site users, mutually accessing a digital twin. Extended Reality Collaboration (ERC) allows building site information to inform design decisions and new design iterations to be momentarily visualized and evaluated on-site.
