Drones and robots weave carbon-fibre pavilion based on moth webs

To create the long-span structure, the team combined strong and precise stationary robots with long-range drones.

“In the specific experimental set-up, two stationary industrial robotic arms with the strength and precision necessary for fibre winding work are placed at the extremities of the structure,” they explained, “while an autonomous, long range but less precise fibre transportation system is utilised to pass the fibre from one side to the other, in this case a custom-built Unmanned Aerial Vehicle.”
