WM Cobotic Matters


Kursbeschreibung (eng)

Imagine a future where humans and machines coexist. Where intelligent robots are involved in everyday aspects of our daily live, assisting and supporting us with their strength and endurance. Even though it might still take some time until we reach Richard Brautigan‘s dream of a „cybernetic ecology“, something that James Lovelock more recently describes as the „Novacene: The Coming Age of Hyperintelligence“, smart technologies are on the rise and already radically transform the way we live and work.

This collaborative course builds upon the premise that human-robot collaboration (HRC) and mobile fabrication/assembly technologies will fundamentally change how we design, manufacture and build. HRC is the study of collaborative processes in which human and robotic agents operate together to achieve shared goals. As a joint venture between the Dessau Institute of Architecture and the Dessau Department of Design we want to explore the possibilities of working with a KUKA LBR iiwa, the world’s first series-produced sensitive, and therefore HRC-compatible, robot.

Focussing on the so-called IKEA effect, which increases the perceived value of products that consumers have partially (co) created, the task of this course will be to design a set of discrete elements, which together with the cobot can be assembled into different spatial configurations, objects or structures.
