Surveying system (MASCOR Institute FH Aachen & IMR RWTH Aachen University)

The objective of the cooperative research project UPNS4D+ is to further develop highly selective, efficient and most secure mining technology for mineral raw materials, specifically raw earths from “domestic” deposits and the exploration of new deposits. This requires new and innovative exploration technology which responds to the demands of dynamic processes of change and raised requirements in planning security. To this end, a groundbreaking positioning-, navigation, and mapping system for subterranean deposits will be developed within the frame of UPNS4D+. The eventual form of this will be a mobile, autonomous and intelligent robotic system. The goal of the 6D-Kartographie research project, which is a part of UPNS4D+, is the development of a robotic prototype for underground mapping, usable in industrial environments.

Automated Removal of Asbestos Contamination

In the Bots2Rec-Project, a semi-autonomous robotic system for the safe removement 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.

Possible RAWIS application

The goal of RAWIS is to develop a radar-based warning and information system for disaster management. The RAWIS system will allow to detect changes in the structure of building parts or slopes from a safe distance without the previous marking of the area with tags. To this end, a new type of radar will be developed to allow for the surveillance of “hidden areas”. This new radar type will combine primary main radar station signals for overall control with mobile secondary radar input. In the end, a permanent tracking of rescue forces throughout all operations and a spatially-limited warning for persons in insecure areas will be possible.
