It’s now cliché, the future of manual work will be mechanized and handled by robotics who will replace human workers. The construction industry has been facing this threat for years now, with some threats already realized, and now thanks to Japan’s Advanced Industrial Science and Technology Institute (AIST), a new threat in the form of humanoid construction robot is imminent.
If the tech research has its way with its new HRP-5P humanoid bot, construction works will have less human labor, longer operating hours, and minimize operations costs, and reduce human casualties from work hazards.
The HRP-5P is a humanoid bot that does a number of construction tasks; though currently it is being pitched for situations when the job at hand is seriously dangerous or there is a staff shortage. The HRP-5P is fitted with a mix of object recognition, environment detection, and careful movement planning to install drywall. The bot hoists up boards and then fastens them into place using a screwdriver; all by itself.
Though the bot lacks the freedom of movement human being enjoy, but it more than makes up for it using numerous joints …read more
