Abstract
(EN)
A robotic drilling system for creating tunnels and conduits is disclosed. The robotic drilling system can include a drill module, a frame module, and/or a shuttle module. The drill module can include a drill and is used to drill into a material to create a void that is the volume of an uncompressed frame module. Frame modules can support the sides of a conduit created by the drill module. Frame modules can be inserted into a conduit in a compressed state and are moved through uncompressed frame modules into a void. A frame module can then be expanded into an uncompressed state that supports the walls of the void. In many embodiments, a shuttle module is used to move the frame modules into position. The shuttle module can also be used to remove shredded material created by drilling by the drill module.

L'invention concerne un système de forage robotisé permettant de créer des tunnels et des conduits. Le système de forage robotisé peut comprendre un module de forage, un module de cadre et/ou un module de navette. Le module de forage peut comprendre un foret et sert à forer dans un matériau afin de créer un vide qui est le volume d'un module de cadre non comprimé. Des modules de cadre peuvent supporter les côtés d'un conduit créé par le module de forage. Des modules de cadre peuvent être insérés dans un conduit dans un état comprimé et sont déplacés à travers des modules de cadre non comprimés dans un vide. Un module de cadre peut ensuite être étendu dans un état non comprimé qui supporte les parois du vide. Dans de nombreux modes de réalisation, un module de navette sert à déplacer les modules de cadre pour les mettre en position. Le module de navette peut également servir à retirer un matériau broyé créé par forage par le module de forage.
