DIGICONCYC - ENERGY-EFFICIENT AUTOMATABLE MANUFACTURING TECHNOLOGY ENERGY-EFFICIENT MODULAR SUSTAINABLE LIGHTWEIGHT BUILDINGS

The aim of the project is to develop an innovative manufacturing technology for the mass pro-duction industry for modular energy-efficient lightweight residential buildings on a modular basis with the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in the production and operation. Also taking into consideration is the development of automated manufacturing processes for the production of complete room modules by means of robot-assisted CAD-CAM technologies and of the automated routing and interconnection of electrical and electronic media as well as the technical building equipment solution for the energy-efficient heating, ventilation und air conditioning (HVAC) of the buildings in accordance with user specific requirements.

The project will perform a variety of tasks to develop and implement energy-efficient modular buildings. These include the development of desirable architectural concepts of single-family homes depending on regional requirements. Manufacturing technologies suitable for mass production will be developed, based on innovative sheet metal processing and forming technology. In addition, robotic technologies are being developed to automate module manufacturing and assembly, including forming, welding and assembly processes. Another focus is on the development of a learning control concept that uses machine learning to reduce energy requirements and increase user comfort. Finally, a central development and demonstrator platform in the form of a virtual twin will be established to integrate and demonstrate the various development aspects.
