If we’re going to take a look at the history of construction, we can say that we’re currently in the most exciting time– where technological innovations are changing the way we work to the point that, it can get pretty overwhelming sometimes.
However, instead of having that kind of feeling, it would be better if you’ll explore how these advancements can make your life easier. Here are the coolest construction technology innovations of 2018.
1. Autonomous Vehicles
Driverless vehicles used to be futuristic ten years ago, but we have finally reached the point where they are slowly being developed. In fact, even the construction industry is welcoming the idea of self-driving trucks, which may allow the workers to control the vehicle even in remote locations to ensure their safety.
Additionally, there are also automated crash trucks that are quite useful for construction crews, allowing them to save money on labor. Not just that, in places where there are smart traffic cones, these vehicles would be perfect as it can send information coming from the car, going to the traffic device and vice versa.
Robotics is getting more and more popular, especially in packaging and palletizing building project materials. Gone are the days when construction workers have to risk their lives just to perform their tasks.
Robots are now being developed to handle some of the most repetitive, tedious, and dangerous jobs in the construction industry. This includes building prefabricated walls, dispensing concrete, and laying bricks.
