SEOUL, Nov. 28 (Korea Bizwire) — A major South Korean builder plans to make use of artificial intelligence (AI) industrial robots at its construction sites.
Hyundai Engineering and Construction Co. plans to test articulated industrial robots at construction sites with the aim to cover 20 percent of the work done at construction sites by 2026.
Previously, industrial robots were mainly capable of conducting basic and repetitive tasks in a stationary environment such as a manufacturing plant.
Hyundai E&C developed a program that follows the work pattern of construction workers, and incorporated it into the software that runs articulated robots to enable automatic controls.
