The construction industry will vigorously use robots in the next few years to achieve high safety and high profits.
According to the British "Daily Mail" reported on May 8, a new report indicates that in the next few years, the construction industry will vigorously use robots to achieve higher speed, higher efficiency, more reliable safety and higher profit results.
Artificial intelligence consulting firm Tractica said that the construction industry has relied on artificial labor for a long time and it is time to make changes. The agency pointed out that recent moves by companies using robotics can represent the beginning of the growth curve. They predict that by 2025, the value of robots replacing artificial construction will reach $226 million, a tenfold increase from 2018. The construction industry's demand for robots is mostly blasting demolition jobs on the site, as well as more professional 3D printing capabilities. These robots are further classified into infrastructure classes, structure classes, and completion classes.
According to Glenn Sanders, senior analyst at Tractica, "The types of robots currently in widespread use include blasting, bricklaying, drilling, 3D printing and reinforced bundling robots, and a handful of robots for lifting. He also pointed out that "medium and large companies are beginning to use these robots to address labor shortages while increasing speed, improving safety and accuracy, and complementing building automation and building information modeling."
The artificial intelligence consulting firm said it has drawn the latest developments and insights through research and design of 28 key players in the construction industry and 60 key emerging industry participants. Previously, robots that could be welded, lifted, and bolted have been developed to help solve labor shortages. Last year, the Japanese construction company Shimizu exhibited several robots at the robotics laboratory in Tokyo, one of which was already used on construction sites. This welding robot can lift a whole piece of steel and transport it to the elevator. The company also pointed out that in terms of safety and regulatory considerations, the robot can only be used at night and around when no one is around.
The UK is also investing in building automation processes, including innovative drones used on construction sites. In March of this year, the British Research and Innovation Association announced a grant of 18 million pounds to support the digital transformation of the construction industry. Dr. Mirko Kovac of Imperial College is the head of the university's aeronautical robotics lab, and he led a research project to explore solutions for building robotic building platforms. Researchers say that using robots can reduce human risk, complete tasks faster, and have better monitoring systems, for example, let robots collect information about the tasks they are working on.
Dr. Kovac also stated that “the future urban construction and maintenance will be carried out by ground robots and flying robots to jointly build, measure and repair urban systems consisting of buildings and infrastructure. By applying some concepts, the construction of drones is realized, Operation and manufacturing have fully proved that this cooperative construction project is completely possible, and we can realize this dream."
As one of the leading companies in the field of AI intelligent storage robots, Kuocang Intelligent has developed rapidly in the past two years. With the expansion of the enterprise scale and the extension of the application field of AGV, Kuocang is gradually expanding its business scope to intelligent manufacturing, 3C industry. It is one of them. What are the new layouts in the 3C industry in the fast-selling intelligence of the e-commerce industry?
The artificial intelligence revolution brought about by neural networks and deep learning is spreading from image recognition and voice recognition to industrial robots, and while the robots are more intelligent, they are also promoting innovation in the manufacturing methods of the industry. For example, in the in-plant logistics handling, the use of intelligent mobile robots to carry goods, can quickly realize the material flow between the warehouse to the production line, the production line to the production line.
In this context, Quick Warehouse uses AI technology to enable the realization of the entire process without manual intervention, independent planning path, IoT, edge computing, artificial intelligence and other cutting-edge technologies, allowing nearly 1,000 fast-smart intelligent robots to work together in the warehouse, combined into An easy-to-deploy, scalable, and efficient full-link warehouse automation solution that transforms traditional manual work modes into real-time online and automated operations.
