Abstract

We present and compare three different amorphous materials for robotic construction. By conforming to surfaces they are deposited on, such materials allow robots to reliably construct in unstructured terrain. However, using amorphous materials presents a challenge to robotic manipulation. We demonstrate how deposition of each material can be automated and compare their material properties, cost, and cost in time in order to evaluate their suitability for developing amorphous robotic construction system.
