The Challenges Of Developing A Robot For Construction Sites

In recent years, more and more robotics and automation solutions are being introduced to the construction industry. These solutions are unique and tailor-made in accordance with the intensive demands of construction work. Robots are traditionally divided to a few general categories: Autonomous Guided Vehicles, Field Robots (usually used in the Homeland Security sector), Factory Pick-and-Place Industrial robots etc. Each family of robots has unique properties with pros and cons and currently it is uncommon to find all the properties realized in a single robot. However, implementing a successful robot for construction tasks requires a combination of a broad range of properties. A robot that is designed to work in construction does not fall into any single of the mentioned above categories. These robots need to be rigid and highly manoeuvrable; tall enough to reach the ceiling and narrow enough to pass through a doorway; yet be stable and accurate. They also need to be ?smart? and deploy highly sensitive sensors in real-time in order to work in a non-sterile continuously changing environment autonomously. This talk will discuss these challenges and the future of robotics in the construction industry and specifically in construction sites.
