US construction robotics firm Built Robotics has announced that it will publicly unveil its fully autonomous construction equipment at North American construction trade show CONEXPO-CON/AGG.
Built’s technology transforms existing construction equipment — including excavators, bulldozers, and skid steers — into fully autonomous robots.
The company’s AI guidance systems can be installed on existing equipment from any manufacturer, while still maintaining manual operation capabilities.
The upgraded equipment is able to perform common tasks fully autonomously, such as digging trenches, excavating foundations, and grading building pads.
The autonomous fleet can be managed via a web-based platform, which allows remote equipment operators to supervise the robots.
This software will be available to demo live at CONEXPO-CON/AGG in Las Vegas.
Noah Ready-Campbell, CEO of Built Robotics, said: “We’ve made significant progress launching the first fully-autonomous construction robots.
“Built is debuting a never-before-seen experience that lets booth visitors manage our robots from a remote distance and see how they work, dig, and operate.
“This puts cutting-edge technology right in the hands of show attendees.”
In addition to the booth’s remote control experience, Built Robotics will be joined by construction leaders for a series of tech talks designed to educate and explain how robots have been transforming the job site.
