Research Focus

Our research is mainly focused on Construction-scale 3D Printing (C3DP) as a robotic construction technology for various terrestrial and extraterrestrial applications. Automated quality control and monitoring, automated reinforcement techniques, and high-performance printing materials are several aspects of this innovative technology that we are actively researching.
