About this event

This presentation focuses on the application of robotics in a new field for applying surface treatments in building voids and the development of the associated architecture of the robots. A typical application for the robots is to apply thermal insulation to the underside of wooden or concrete floors in buildings. Within this environment the robot needs to be able to navigate and deploy a spray applied insulation fed by a hose assembly. The resulting robots have been commercially developed, and are successfully spraying thermal insulation in a wide range of building applications.
