How to make construction work more sustainable using Big Data
With 27,000 students, 4,000 employees and a large car fleet, SDU's green transport initiatives are set to reduce the University’s overall carbon footprint. However, green transport is about more than just measuring the impact here and now. It’s about a fundamental change in behaviour and about finding lasting solutions through disruptive field tests. Among other things, these initiatives will nudge us into changing motorist behaviour from one driver, one car, to carpooling.
The Robotic Reversible Timber Beam (R2TB) will be placed on a podium at Campustorvet in Odense. It showcases a new model of circular construction aided by Human-Robot Collaboration. The project aims at maximising the carbon storage of wood with the introduction of reusable building blocks that extend the material life cycle. Assembled by collaborative robots, R2TB is composed of 696 reversible wood elements, which can be demounted and reused into a wide range of spatial assemblies, giving the structure the capacity to update and evolve its configuration in time.
