Technologies like drones have been catching on slowly, but there's good reason –and some new systems – to change that. According to a recent article in Inside Unmanned Systems:
“There is a rich spectrum of opportunities for AI and robotics to enhance the construction of large capital projects,” [said John Voeller, and ASME White House Fellow who has provided technical advice to Congressional policy makers and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy]. “However, setting the stage for these technologies will require a high level of integrated thinking to address the issues and a clear line of sight to solutions that can bring real value and withstand the rigors of the construction environment and the penalties of improperly managing risk.”
The article also looked at three new systems that could give your company reason to take a fresh look at investing in high tech. These include demolition robots, semi-automatic masonry units, and advanced exoskeletons.
