AI and Robotics in Construction workshop returns to the European Robotics Forum

 13 March 2024, 16:30-17:50 (GMT+1 / CET)
Palacongressi di Rimini, Via della Fiera 23 – 47923 Rimini (Italy)

ROBÉTARME will participate in the European Robotics Forum 2024 with a session on AI and Robotics in Construction.

Embark on a journey with us as we delve into the cutting-edge realm of AI and robotics in construction, building on the success of last year’s workshop. Join us in unravelling the following intriguing questions:

  1. Unlocking Potential Applications: Discover the most pivotal applications of AI and robotics in construction while unravelling the technological challenges that demand our attention.

  2. Building Acceptance: Explore how AI and robotics solutions can seamlessly integrate into the fabric of construction companies and gain acceptance from the workforce. What steps must be taken in the coming years to ensure a harmonious collaboration?

  3. Real-world Insights: Navigate through the unexpected challenges encountered during the implementation of our projects over the past year. What valuable user insights have we gleaned from these experiences?

Highlighting the core theme of our endeavours, we’ll shine a spotlight on the transformative power of AI and robotics in automating construction processes. Our ongoing research and development initiatives are geared towards revolutionizing the industry.

Witness a showcase of our three groundbreaking projects, followed by an in-depth exploration of key aspects of AI and robotics technology pivotal for ushering in robotic automation on construction sites. Dive into the latest advancements in robot vision, navigation, control, and the dynamic field of human-robot collaboration (HRC).

Moreover, gain exclusive insights from our inaugural end-user evaluation conducted in collaboration with HumanTech. Engage in a thought-provoking panel discussion that unravels the challenges and lessons learned throughout our projects.

To wrap up this enlightening journey, we invite you to participate in an interactive feedback session, connecting with workshop attendees to share thoughts and ideas. This is not just a workshop; it’s a glimpse into the future where AI and robotics redefine the landscape of construction. Join us on this transformative ride!
