Robots will aid the next generation of construction workers

Construction robots are a sub-set of industrial robots used for building and infrastructure construction at site. These robots have to be able to move and fix itself to the working zone, handle construction materials and interact with humans and other machineries. Currently, most of the activities are in research level while some real world application has also been done such as for dam construction in Japan.
