Session Details

Application of Robotics, Automation and Augmentation in Construction

Why do we need automation and augmentation?
Our ongoing market research is providing valuable insights into specific areas of the construction industry that are already of considerable concern. Companies are faced with some serious challenges that will require attention and investment if they are to mitigate the associated risks such as skills shortages, health and safety and productivity and margins

What can we do about this?
We must aim revolutionise the industry both at the construction site and prefabrication facilities through automation and augmentation using smart robotic construction technology. Automation has proven its worth and cemented its place in all other major industries radically improving efficiency, productivity and repeat-ability.
