SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Built Robotics, the nation's leader in construction robotics, is unveiling to the public for the first time their fully autonomous construction equipment at North America's largest construction trade show, CONEXPO-CON/AGG.
Along with the unveiling, Built Robotics will be hosting live remote control experiences with the robots. The remote control experience will allow show attendees to run a Built robot located in Houston and see first-hand how the robots and technology operate in the field.
"We've made significant progress launching the first fully-autonomous construction robots. Built is debuting a never-before-seen experience that lets booth visitors manage our robots from a remote distance and see how they work, dig, and operate. This puts cutting-edge technology right in the hands of show attendees," said Noah Ready-Campbell, CEO of Built Robotics.
Built's technology transforms existing construction equipment — including excavators, bulldozers, and skid steers — into fully autonomous robots. The AI guidance systems can be installed on existing equipment from any manufacturer, while still maintaining complete manual operation capabilities.
The upgraded equipment is able to perform common tasks fully autonomously, such as digging trenches, excavating foundations, and grading building pads. The autonomous fleet can be managed via a web-based platform, which allows remote equipment operators to supervise the robots. This software will be available to demo live at CONEXPO-CON/AGG in Las Vegas.
In addition to the booth's remote control experience, Built Robotics will be joined by construction leaders for a series of tech talks designed to educate and explain how robots have been transforming the job site. The talks will be taking place every day from March 11–13 both at CONEXPO-CON/AGG and the nearby AGC National Convention.
