Abstract

Our goal is to analyse the characteristics and problems that are related to the analysis and conservation of historical architecture, within an innovative approach with robotised systems. The design requisites and the distinctive aspects of the operations of a large range of robotised systems have now been fully defined and investigated. However, there are very few precedents for such specialized application, moreover, in connection to the subject of historical architecture that is apparently far away from general areas of robotics and mechatronics. The case of study that is presented here, namely the pre-Cosmatesque floor of the abbatial basilica of Montecassino, is a good case to highlight the flexibility of robotics and possible interactions with architecture, particularly in the field of surveying. Thus, this research focuses specifically on the application of robotic systems in the study and survey of ancient floor surfaces, although the wider purpose is to study and refine robotized systems and automated procedures to develop activities and results in the analysis phase and for the safeguard and conservation of historical architectural sites at large.
