MSc2 CS 2020: Cyber-physical Space 4.0



The Cyber-physical Space (CpS) will be developed for underground off-Earth habitats on Mars using Design-to-Robotic-Production and -Operation (D2RP&O) methods. The design takes functional, structural, material, and operational aspects into account. It furthermore, integrates sensor-actuators into the life supporting system of the habitat. The focus will be on two main aspects of the design: 1. Parametric design and robotic production, 2. User-space interaction and sensor-actuator operation. Both aspects will be developed in groups of 4-5 students subdivided in two subgroups addressing each of the two aspects.


1. PPT presentation (uploaded to the wiki) showing project theme, design strategy, and design from schematic to developed and materialisation design levels.
2. 1- to max. 2-minutes video of D2RP&O process uploaded to the wiki.
3. Report (±1500 words) consisting of textual and photo/graphical documentation of D2RP&O process developed during the course.
4. Clean Rhino and Grasshopper files and refined version D2RP&O procedures.
5. 3D printed model and/or 1:1 prototypes and tests.


The course takes place in the 3rd Quarter (from February to mid-April) and is preliminarily scheduled to take place Fridays starting 13:00h. The intro is on Friday 12/02 starting 13:00h and midterm and final review are preliminarily scheduled on 12th of March and 16th of April, respectively. Lectures are scheduled as follows:
17.02, 13:00h: Robert Lindner, ESA on Life support Systems and In-Situ Resource Utilisation for off-Earth structures
19.02, 13:00h: Volker Ruitinga, Vertico on Challenges of 3D Printing Large-scale Structures
24.02, 13:00h: Hamed Alavi, UniFri on Sensor-actuators and Human-Computer Interaction for Intelligent Distributed Systems
