To drive forward industrialisation in timber construction, methods are being developed as part of this project to enable the automation of robot programming for assembly processes. It focuses on the development of a modular system which can be integrated into the existing workflows of timber construction companies. The main goal is to achieve automated data consistency in timber construction from the planning process to the construction of a building.
