A new research initiative aims to use robots to improve the Australian construction industry’s productivity and quality.
An interdisciplinary team from seven Australian universities will develop an advanced facility based around structural assembly and construction automation.
It will feature flexible and adaptive design, and space for a team of collaborative robotics, in an interactive environment to achieve automated prefabrication, assembly and building.
The research hopes to transform the current labour-intensive construction industry to one that uses highly automated and accurate prefabrication processes, proving significant benefits to the economy and worker safety. Continue here
