Robotics: Automating the Job Site

Though collaboration between tech developers and industry is critical to widespread adoption, safer job sites where workers are free to handle more challenging tasks is happening now. “In an industry often averse to risk, construction professionals will want to see proof of success before widespread adoption of robotics in the field,” wrote Andrew Roe, president of consulting firm AGR Associates. Automated technology is being adopted in the movement of construction materials from one location on a job site to another. Roe notes that robotics are visible in other construction applications including monitoring of field conditions in areas too dangerous for humans to navigate. Construction Robotics offers Semi-Automated Mason (SAM) for bricklaying and Material Unit Lift Enhancer (MULE) to handle heavy material on construction sites.
