Construction Robotics (CR): The Changing Face of Construction

Share this

In September, Scott Peters, the founder and CEO of Construction Robotics (CR), spoke at our event and shared their research and robotic technologies with our AI4AECO community and their POV about the future of the construction industry. This article summarizes some of the discussions shared during the session.

The construction labor challenge is not limited to a shortage of workers; injuries from lifting heavy objects, the pressure of shorter project lead times, and the desire to diversify the workforce also create challenges. Subcontractors or GCs have to deal with the cost of worker injuries and lost work time due to injuries and early retirement.

Most construction requires manual lifting. Masonry is a typical example of lifting, placing, or holding hundreds of heavy blocks throughout a day, which is incredibly strenuous on the body.  How best to reduce workers’ injuries when a construction job requires heavy lifting and repetitive motions?

SAM & MULE

CR has built robots that handle repetitive motion tasks with fast and accurate placement of objects. One of CR’s solutions is SAM, a bricklaying robot for onsite and prefabricated masonry construction. What can SAM do?

One of the other solutions CR offers is MULE, which is an ergonomic lift-assist material handling solution. What can MULE do?

Construction Robotics provides smarter construction solutions for lifting oversized materials and automating masonry while improving the productivity and safety of the workforce.
