Unexpected construction waste can cause incontinence and insecurity for the ongoing fabrication process. Our aim is to supervise the construction activities, detect constructional waste instantly, and collect the construction waste, with the help of distributed mobile robots.
Pursuing the idea of the open-source and accessible device, we have chosen Android phone as the onboard computation unit for mobile robots. Having different sensors, different interfaces, communication protocols, and inexpensive devices makes Android a powerful platform for our investigation.
