Construction automation software has a bright future as a new field of automation has a clear path towards becoming the next big business.
In this new era, robots are expected to become the new jobs.
While traditional manufacturing and construction are a bit of a slow-moving industry, the arrival of robotic construction has the potential to accelerate the shift to automation.
“We’ve seen some very impressive robotics that are already in the market, but that’s only a small part of the story,” said Richard Kiel, CEO of construction automation firm Kiel Construction.
Kiel Construction is one of a handful of companies developing robot construction applications.
The company, which has offices in Florida and Arizona, also has a partnership with Google that allows the company to create applications for both residential and commercial projects.
Kogels software can build customized robots that can take apart and repair structures, such as apartment buildings, and assemble them with other parts.
Kiefer Kogels is one company that is working on the development of a robotic system that can help build apartment buildings.
This new technology could be the key to the future of construction.
“In the next couple of years, we’re looking at maybe building a robotic construction site, maybe building one or two houses,” said Kiefer co-founder and CEO Chris Waggoner.
The company developed Kogel’s robotic system to work with its existing robotic tools, but it’s using the Kiefers newest tool, a 3D printer, to build these new robots.
“The Koges robotic system is a lot more sophisticated and it can build structures at a much higher resolution than what you can get with the existing tool set,” Waggone said.
Waggoner said the Kogers system can handle a number of complex objects at once.
He said the software can work with other robotic tools such as hydraulic trucks, excavators and chainsaws, to help with the job.
The robot also has the ability to communicate with the outside world and make repairs to structures.
Waggoned said the company is working with other companies in the field to create software for building robots that would be easy to use.
Kagel Construction is also working with the construction and material management firm Kifford, which is using its own robotics technology to help build robotic platforms that can move and move with precision.
“It’s a really nice tool,” Wargone said of the Kiffords robot.
“It’s been very helpful for us to get our jobs done, and we’re very excited about that.”
Robotics companies are excited to see how their technologies are used to create new businesses.
The Kogens robotic system could help automate many of the tasks that have long been handled by humans.
Kiffords, Waggones and other robotics companies have been developing robots for a few years, but the Kigels technology is an example of a new, much faster, and cheaper way to do construction work.
“You can make things out of a very small material, which means you can build something that’s extremely fast, very simple to build,” Kiffones co-CEO Brian Gaffney said.
“There are a lot of jobs that are going to be automated.
If we can make those things faster and cheaper, it opens up new markets, new opportunities for new businesses to come in and make those kinds of products,” Gaffneys said.
