What year will it be when robots do all our construction work?

What year will it be when robots do all our construction work?

In fact, construction is one of the places where robots have already begun to replace workers. Some examples are provided here. SRI Robotics developed an excavator for construction automation that can operate autonomously following pre-programmed instructions on where to dig, be controlled using video game motion controls, or manually by a driver. SRI Robotics' excavator used as a construction robot Drones are used to build housing prototypes by MuDD Architects. MuDD Architects uses drones to build housing prototypes AIST, Japan's National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, developed a humanoid construction robot that can be used on construction sites…

Automatic Excavator for Automation in Construction Industry

Automatic Excavator for Automation in Construction Industry

SRI Robotics developed an excavator for construction automation that can operate autonomously following pre-programmed instructions on where to dig, be controlled using video game motion controls, or manually by a driver. The operator can control the excavator using simple video game motion controls. Image credit: SRI Robotics The excavator can also be controlled manually by an operator. Image credit: SRI Robotics The autonomous operation for the automatic digger is possible through several depth-sensing 3D cameras, antennas, and wireless communication that also allow the excavator to intelligently detect people and stop while flashing warning lights to provide safety. The remote control…

Warehouse Robotic Automation

Warehouse Robotic Automation

[BONUS] Download the nice PDF version of the lesson HERE! These are warehouse robots: Warehouse robotics changed the way work used to be done in warehouses. The rise of the COVID-19 pandemic revealed the weaknesses of systems and processes that relied only on physical presence, leading to a surge in automation. The rise of the COVID-19 pandemic changed the way the processes were previously done. Robots and automated systems replaced the processes that used to be done manually or through face-to-face interaction. The processes that used to be done manually or through face-to-face interaction rapidly switch towards automated processes. Automated…
