James (ESR08) and Sam (ESR12) both attended the Acadia 2017 “Disciplines and Disruption” Conference at MIT in Boston, 2nd-4th November 2017.
During the conference, our colleagues from the ICD (Institute of Computational Design and Construction) presented the paper:
Multi-Machine Fabrication: An Integrative Design Process Utilising an Autonomous UAV and Industrial Robots for the Fabrication of Long-Span Composite Structures
The paper, co-authored by James and Sam, can be found at the link above on the open-access CumInCad platform.
Apart from the presentation of the paper, the conference gave a great opportunity to catch-up with various colleagues and acquaintances from around the world as well as listen to presentations on a wide range of current research, including presentations by fellow Innochain ESRs Giulio Brugnaro and Stephanie Chaltiel whose work can also be found on CumInCad.
