The company’s representatives are sure that the machine can already compete with human personnel.
Nowadays, we expect robots to perform simple, monotonous tasks. Engineers from all over the world are constantly creating machines that can save us from doing hard and tedious work, such as laying bricks, for example.
Australian scientists at Fastbrick Robotics have developed an innovative solution for a labour intensive industry. Their invention is called Hadrian X, and this robot is able to lay out up to 200 bricks per hour in a workmanlike manner. Thus, the machine is ready to make the builders’ work significantly easier.
Hadrian X needs a 3-D model of the building being built to work, for it will guide it to build walls without anyone’s help. The robot can distinguish between different types of bricks and apply a brickwork mortar, like a true brick-layer.
Moreover, the machine can compete with human personnel not only in the speed of work but also in the cost of services. Operational commissioning of such robots will help real estate developers optimize costs and reduce the final housing prices.
