LSBU DARLAB announces partnership with HAL Robotics

LSBU attends Digital Construction Week with new partner HAL Robotics, to put focus on applications of robotics in creative and construction industries
22 October 2015

London South Bank University (LSBU)’s flagship Digital Architecture Robotics Laboratory (DARLAB) is to be a technological and educational partner of London-based robot control specialists HAL Robotics.

DARLAB is an advanced digital manufacturing robotic lab, designed for high-quality research, as well as developing commercial applications for architecture. It advances experimentation and cross-discipline collaboration among students, industry partners and academic staff to expand the boundaries of architectural practice.

DARLAB’s partnership with HAL Robotics was premiered at Digital Construction Week, an exhibition showcasing the work of leading suppliers to the Architecture Engineering and Construction industry. Visitors to the fair were treated to live demonstrations of the technology and the expertise offered by DARLAB and its partners, with live robotics, laser cutting and pick and place technologies on show.

With work done in the lab directly impacting the future of construction, a partnership with DARLAB can help industry researchers searching for sector-changing precedents. With access to DARLAB's technology, LSBU's partners are enabled and supported to develop prototype ideas into commercially viable products. The partnership also gives LSBU access to industri­al-quality software, support for workshops and on-site training for students, staff and researchers.
