In this RoboBusiness Direct session, attendees will learn more about the building robotics solutions available today, emerging developments and the critical need for new building automation technologies.
The construction industry, which includes housing, road and bridge construction, and industrial construction, has annual sales of around $ 10 trillion – about 6 percent of global GDP – but is one of the least automated sectors. While construction productivity has improved over the past few decades, it is important that the construction industry become much more efficient. To illustrate this, it has been estimated that around 13,000 new buildings will have to be constructed every day between 2020 and 2050 alone in order to cope with the growing world population. Robotics and automation can help.
In this RoboBusiness Direct In this session, which is suitable for construction professionals as well as robotics entrepreneurs and engineers, participants will learn more about the solutions available today for construction robotics, the emerging developments and the critical need for new technologies for building automation. In addition, challenges and functional gaps in the construction sector that present opportunities for providers of robotics solutions are discussed.
