MIT Team Working with Neri Oxman Design "Fiberbots" to Respond Quickly to Natural Disaster

4 monthes ago   |   By Arch Daily

The MIT-based Mediated Matter Group have created Fiberbots , an autonomous digital fabrication platform designed to quickly build architecture during disaster. By utilizing cooperative robotic manufacturing, Fiberbots can create highly sophisticated material structures. The small robots work as a group to wind fiberglass filament and create high-strength tubular structures. MIT researchers envision the bots building in extreme environments and natural disaster zones.
