Two Ways to Use Robots in Construction: On-Site or Prefabrication

(AEC-Business)  The convergence of several technologies is making the automated construction site look attainable. There are two basic ways to use robots in construction: in a factory or at the construction site. Many pundits say that the only feasible way to increase construction productivity is to prefabricate as much as possible. Another strategy, though much harder to implement, is to automate on-site construction as much as possible.
Some companies, like the Danish firm Odico, are using a hybrid solution. Odico used robotic hot-wire cutting to create formworks from digital models. The forms are produced in a manufacturing facility and used on-site for concrete casting.
