Why Autonomous Equipment is Great for the Construction Industry

Built Robotics is developing fully autonomous heavy equipment by retrofitting existing equipment (using hardware and sensors) to enable full autonomy. Instead of eliminating people's jobs, these autonomous machines can help as contractors struggle during the worker shortage. "We believe if we automate basic repetitive tasks on the jobsite... we can reallocate skilled operators to doing the higher value tasks on the jobsite that only humans can do," says Guarav Kitikani with Built Robotics.
