Robots for Building in the Wild

Date TBA

Robots are performing difficult tasks in highly variable and unpredictable settings. From site surveying to building structures, robots are changing the course of construction and how we build. Robots come in all shapes, sizes and form factors — and each provide distinct advantages for applications in buildings and building design. We can now call on robots in construction to perform dull, dirty, and dangerous tasks, and to create new types of buildings and architectures never before possible using manual construction methods. This panel will highlight the benefits and challenges of developing, employing, operating and maintaining robots that build “in the wild.”
