Later, the role of the Construction Workers will be replaced by Robots

In making food, building, electronic equipment, cars, or other objects, it takes time and energy in large quantities. Robot's industries often creates a robot that is able to help them, to replace the role of workers labor for the project with funding that is not small.

But during the same, rarely robots created to work outdoors in a much larger scale: like putting a brick in the construction of houses or buildings. And now, a number of companies and scientists from the university is developing a robot that can sort of concrete beams in the building project.

Perth-based company named Fastbrick Robotics, create a robot that can make up 1,000 bricks in just one hour named 'Hadrian' (after Hadrian's Wall in the UK).
Hadrian is expected to go into action next year. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/1JDkhBD)
At the heart of Hadrian is a 28 m (92 ft) articulated telescopic boom. Though mounted on an excavator in the photo below, the finished version will sit on a truck, allowing it easier movement from place to place. The robot brick-layer uses information fed from a 3D CAD representation of the home for brick placement, with mortar or adhesive delivered under pressure to the head of the boom.
The robotic arm will eventually sit on a truck and The boom is auto-corrected 1,000 times per second. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/1JDkhBD)
Not only Fastbrick Robotic, ETH Zurich, the Swiss National Science Foundation (through the National Centres of Competence in Research) also creates an autonomous construction robot named 'In-situ Fabricator'. It’s an industrial arm on a mobile base that can lay bricks, but the difference between this system and the one from last week is that the In-situ Fabricator is designed to be completely self-contained, without requiring any external localization systems.

The robot is equipped with an arm that can put a heavy building material. The robot can also build a 3D map of the area of construction using its laser scanner. Let's see video below.
ETH Zurich also working at the program of robots making such as 'Robotic aggregations of materials with unpredictable geometry,' which is developing a system that can build things out of rubble. Obviously, this innovation will make it easier and certainly accelerate the development of high-rise buildings in the future.. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | GIZMAG | IEEE SPECTRUM]
