Innovations in modular building systems are limited by the low availability of well-designed module connectors. We have developed a universal, bolt-less connector for modular buildings of all shapes and sizes of up to 40 storeys (including public housing, condominiums, hospitals, hotels, offices, shopping centres etc.). Unlike other modular connectors, which are limited structurally and functionally, our design safely transfers lateral loads whilst remaining independent from the modules. Our universal connectors are remotely operable and enhance construction automation (Construction 4.0) and the uptake of low carbon modular buildings.
