Assessing the Future: Job Site Robotics Are Quickly Gaining Ground

Technology and robotics on construction sites

The introduction of advanced technologies and robotics have continued to increase in popularity in construction. With large-scale robotic solutions, these devices are transported to a job site to execute specific tasks. For example, Tybot automates the task of tying rebar intersections on bridges and other large structures. While these types of machines are useful, their place onsite brings up issues of safety and practicality.

The development of lighter and more adaptable robots, such as “exoskeletons”, have also made their way to construction sites. These devices are being used to help workers ease repetitive stress on their bodies while working. For example, the EksoWorks Vest provides arm and shoulder support to alleviate the strain of lifting objects. This would allow workers to stay on the job longer and help increase productivity.

Devices such as Tybot and the EksoWorks Vest are just a small sample of how technological advancements will change the industry in the future. However, deploying them regularly will take some time. Currently, technologies such as the use of 3D printing , drones, and wireless sensors can be seen on site. These developments help to offset issues that contractors and workers frequently run into, such as labor shortages, an aging industry, and necessary overtime.
