Augmented Assembly for Tessellated Structures

 

Monday, June 5, 2017 - 9:15am

Environmental Design Sessional Instructor, Parantap Bhatt presented the talk "Augmented Assembly for Tessellated Structures" at the Symposium on Simulation for Architecture and Urban Design, SimAUD 2017, hosted by the University of Toronto (John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design).

Augmented Assembly for Tessellated Structures

"This paper focuses on describing how augmented reality (AR) and object tracking methods can become tools for overlaying real-time information, for assembly of structures with tessellated geometries. Within this context, guided assembly is explored as an alternative to the energy intensive construction and demolition processes currently used in the building industry. For the research, sheet folding is chosen as the process upon which all assembly data is based on, and object tracking and augmented reality software are used as tools to guide the assembly of the proposed system. Experiments across multiple scales are conducted to study various methods of translating digital geometric information into a series of physical guided manipulations, which form the techniques for achieving a correct degree of folding within the component. Through large scale assembly tests, the viability of using guided assembly techniques as well as the potential of applying them in construction ascenarios is assessed. The paper concludes with a description of benefits and drawbacks in which such technology may be used for, and outlines suggestions for further developments of the system to become a viable tool for construction assembly."
