The aim of Bots2Rec is to validate a process for the automatic elimination of asbestos contamination in the rehabilitation of buildings. Nowadays, asbestos is present in many old buildings in Europe, although today it’s prohibited because it’s considered toxic. To do this removal work, a mobile robot manipulator with abrasive and suction tools is used. Its implementation will allow to reduce the cost and the time of the process as well as minimize human exposure to this construction material.
Robotnik and other six partners participate in this EU Horizon 2020 project.
