Highly automatEd PHysical Achievements and performancES using cable roboTs Unique Systems (HEPHAESTUS) is a Horizon 2020 EU-funded project carried out by 9 partners from across Europe that addresses novel concepts to introduce Robotics and Autonomous Systems use in construction, where this type of products is minor or almost non-existent. It focuses to give novel solutions to one of the most important fields in construction, the field related to the façades[, and the works that need to be done when this part of a building is built or needs maintenance. HEPHAESTUS proposes new automatized ways to install these products, providing a whole solution not only highly industrialised in production but also in installation and maintenance.
