Title
(EN) METHODS AND APPARATUS FOR MOBILE ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING
(FR) PROCÉDÉS ET APPAREILS DESTINÉS À LA FABRICATION MOBILE D'ADJUVANTS
Abstract
(EN) Mobile and automated processing utilizes additive manufacturing. Methods include the utilization of mobile and automated processing apparatus. The mobile additive manufacturing apparatus may perform surface treatments that alter the topography of an existing roadway surface. Other examples may involve the processing of dimensionally large layers which may be joined together to create large pieces with three dimensional shape. A mobile additive manufacturing apparatus, called an Addibot, is configured to comprise a drive system which may be operative to move the apparatus along a surface. The Addibot may function with no physical tether. The Addibot may comprise a navigation system which among other functions may determine the Addibot' s current location and its current bearing or direction that it would travel in when caused to move or is travelling in if moving.
(FR) L'invention concerne des traitements mobiles et automatisés pour la fabrication d'adjuvants. Les procédés comprennent l'utilisation d'appareils mobiles et automatisés de traitement. Les appareils de fabrication mobile d'adjuvants peuvent effectuer des traitements de surface qui altèrent la topographie d'une surface existante de chaussée. D'autres exemples peuvent impliquer le traitement de couches de grandes dimensions qu'on peut rassembler afin de créer de grandes pièces de forme tridimensionnelle. Un appareil de fabrication mobile d'adjuvants, qu'on appelle un Addibot, est conçu pour contenir un système d'entraînement qui peut être fonctionnel pour déplacer l'appareil le long d'une surface. L'Addibot peut fonctionner sans attache physique. L'Addibot peut comprendre un système de navigation qui, parmi d'autres fonctions, peut déterminer l'emplacement actuel de l'Addibot et sa position ou sa direction actuelle, qu'il parcourrait si on le poussait à bouger ou qu'il parcourt s'il se déplace.
