In the Bots2Rec-Project, a semi-autonomous robotic system for the safe removal of asbestos residues from 1970s and 1980s housings and apartments will be developed. Despite the high availability and diversity of automation solutions in industrial areas, robots are rarely used in the construction sector. For this reason, the project partners develop new approaches and adapt already existing high-tech solutions in this area to protect construction workers from harmful substances and materials. The overall goal is to enable the cost-efficient renovation of old and contaminated housing all across Europe.
