An inner construction work robot system for testing automated construction has been designed and is under construction at VTT. The robot system can reach any inner surface of a room, the maximum height of which is 3.2 m, and 10 kg payload (including tooling) can be moved anywhere in the room in desired orientation. The system consists of a track based vehicle, an industrial robot, a lifting mechanism and process tooling. The system can be moved on the construction site using its caterpillar track locomotion. It is connected to the stationary control equipment and energy source with a set of cables. Wall cladding with ceramic tiles is the first test application.
