Construction Robotics: Challenges and Opportunities for a Rapidly Industrializing Sector
10:00 AM - 10:45 AM
Robots and autonomous machinery are becoming a prominent feature in the Industrialization of Construction, both in the factory and in the field. While they may offer tremendous gains in design freedom and construction efficiency, they also require new ways of working for architects, builders, and software companies. For almost a decade, the CAD-software provider Autodesk has been exploring the future of designing and construction in a world enabled by robots. In this panel, researchers from Autodesk will discuss challenges and opportunities of factory-based automation, field robotics, and autonomous machinery for the Industrialization of Construction.
