Abstract

Functional requirements, technical specifications and economical feasibility on masonry robotic theme have been investigated. Two alternatives are discussed: a modular SCARA-based system and a six D.O.F. articulated configuration. Market prices of $310000 and $350000 respectively have been estimated for the systems with a payback period of 6 years with realistic partition wall sizes. Economic analysis shows that a critical factor in the feasibility of such automatic masonry systems is the partition wall size due to manual preliminary works, which require rather constant amount of time. To reach a proper technical and economical feasibility, partition wall as the end product has to be restricted. The results of the study will be used for planning future research projects.
