Abstract

Robotics and automation was considered unsuitable for the construction site due to uniqueness of construction projects, their dynamic nature and aggressive environmental conditions at site. However, shortage of skilled labour and their high costs and the need to ensure quality, safety along with fast track constructions has made entry of robotics and automation into construction sites an inevitable fact. Also increased awareness of artificial intelligence technology, use of lasers and sensors is making robotics and automation more user-friendly even in construction sites. In this study the available literature on automation and robotics developed for the construction industry is analysed.
