Zurich, ETH Zurich Research – The ever-evolving technology continues to bring transformations to the construction sector. The autonomous excavator HEAP, developed by researchers at ETH Zurich, not only rearranges the ground but now stands out with its ability to build mortar-free stone walls. Thanks to this innovative technology, HEAP successfully completed the construction of an impressive 6-meter-high and 65-meter-long wall.
The autonomous nature of HEAP allows for more efficient and faster work in the construction industry. The programmable ground rearrangement feature provides the advantage of working with unprecedented precision in construction projects. However, the latest capability offered by HEAP is revolutionizing the industry with its ability to build stone walls without mortar.
Researchers at ETH Zurich conducted an extensive series of experiments to test the solidity and durability of the wall built by HEAP without mortar. The results show that HEAP offers a faster, more economical, and environmentally friendly option compared to traditional methods.
Dr. Emma Kessler, one of the project leaders, said, “HEAP’s ability to build mortar-free stone walls is a revolutionary step in the construction industry. This technology provides a significant solution for professionals looking to optimize construction processes and minimize environmental impact.”
The use of HEAP is expected to significantly reduce labor costs in construction processes. Additionally, walls built without mortar by HEAP are anticipated to contribute to energy and material savings, promoting the widespread adoption of sustainable construction practices.
This achievement is noteworthy in demonstrating the potential of artificial intelligence-supported technologies in the construction sector. In the future, with similar innovations, the construction industry can focus on projects that are safer, faster, and environmentally friendly.
Artificial Intelligence – Chat GPT
The technology developed at ETH Zurich is also a rapid response of artificial intelligence to the IMPACT advertisement that made reference to the capabilities of artificial intelligence with the slogan “Hey ChatGPT, complete this building.”
