Automated Design Generation for Insulated Panel Retrofit System

The proposed product retrofits existing house walls to achieve R-20 insulation and minimize infiltration in order to reduce energy consumption at minimal initial cost. The product uses a pre-manufactured rigid foam insulation panels bonded to siding panels and with an optional integrated, automated insulated shutter system. The assessment and manufacturing process leverages a computer software that uses optical recognition technology, scaling properties and optimization algorithms to automatically generate panel sizes , a bill of materials and an assembly schematic.Cutting is performed at the factory and the product is shipped to the home owner for fast, low waste and cost effective installations.
