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
