Advanced building engineering: Deploying mechatronics and robotics in architecture

  title={Advanced building engineering: Deploying mechatronics and robotics in architecture},
  author={Thomas Linner and Christos Georgoulas and Thomas Bock},
Purpose As robots are not yet widely accepted in Europe as service providers in home environments, the authors intent to establish the possibility to distribute robotic elements and mechatronic devices in order to fuse them with various subsystems of buildings. Thus, robotic service systems could support Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), becoming an invisible part of the building. The proposed approach combines and applies strategies of performance oriented architecture, ubiquitous computing… CONTINUE READING
