The AutoRobXL network has received funding approval for phase 1 from the Central Innovation Program for SMEs (ZIM). AutoRobXL starts on August 1, 2023. It consists of eight small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), two large companies and three chairs at TU Dresden. The network manager is Whiterock AG in Stuttgart.

The network is an association of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) along the entire value chain, research institutions and users. By means of an integrated approach of software and hardware development, innovative control and operating concepts are to be created that use new types of sensors and actuators as well as optimized hydraulic drives. In addition, new and further developed simulation and calculation methods will be used. The high movement accuracy of large-scale manipulators to be developed in the network and the resulting automation of construction processes can significantly improve quality, profitability and adherence to deadlines on the construction site and effectively counteract the limited availability of qualified personnel.
