Construction Robots for Site Automation
Many robots have been developed and used for the purpose of automating the construction site. This paper reports on the construction robots developed by Shimizu Construction Co.-- the robot for fireproofing of structural steel frames (SSR-3), the robot for condominium outer balustrade wall finishing work (OSR-1), the robot for floor finishing work (MTV-1), and the manipulator for positioning steel beams (Mighty Jack).
Themes for the future development of construction robots, the development of automated construction systems, worker training and the development of related technology are also discussed.
