A Review on Automation and Robotic Technology in Construction Industry

Muffakham Shareef


Abstract: Automation and robotics are the use of computers, control systems and information technology to manage various works, replacing manual labour and improving efficiency, speed, quality and performance. Multiple researchers have worked and are working in the construction field to implement robotics technology in construction industry. Growth in utilization of automation and robotics technology is more apparent in western world. Such technologies are developed due to reducing labor population, diminishing of skilled workers, to eliminate dangerous jobs for labors and to promote safety and security in construction. The aim and purpose of this review was to study and analyze the ongoing consciousness, desirability, usefulness, acceptability and adaptability of robotics and automation in the construction industry. The implementation of robotics has been used to a large extent on-site and mostly targeted low rise buildings. The general perception of the practicing construction industry professionals is that robotics and automation are considered to be similar and are beneficial and suitable for a developing country. A systematic search of IEEE, Web of Science, and Scopus was conducted. The systematic search shows that researchers in the USA played a main role on robotics and automation in construction industry, followed by Switzerland and Germany.
