NYU Tandon plans fleet of mobile 3D Printers for construction and repair


Robotics experts at the New York University (NYU) Tandon School of Engineering are designing a collective of robots equipped with 3D printers for autonomous and mobile construction. The research project is supported by a $1.2 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF), and is taking place at NYU’s Center for Urban Science and Progress (CUSP). Chen Feng, assistant professor at NYU Tandon’s Department of Civil and Urban Engineering and Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, states that “To unleash the full potential of Collective Additive Manufacturing, several scientific boundaries must be pushed, ensuring optimal deployment of multiple mobile robots that print large structures according to an engineered, virtual design.”
