Computer-assisted robotic tiling of mosaics
MetadataShow full item record
This paper describes the development of a system that is capable of tiling Mosaics using a robot according to requirements of the individual customer. The art of mosaic, in one form or another. has been practiced manually for thousands of years. Modern developments in materials and production techniques could be found as evidence that mosaic is very much alive in the new millennium. It is very costly and also difficult to find skilful people to the mosaic. Therefore a computer-assisted robotic system has been constructed and applied. To activate the system a particular algorithm has been developed and successfully applied on an available SCARA robot.
