"Tuesday, 1 June 2021 from 9:00-11:00am US Eastern time In Partnership with the RAS Industrial Activities Board (IAB) and the Construction Industry Institute (CII) Advances in robotics and automation offer new solutions to humanity’s oldest problems of clean water, food and shelter. The 2021 ICRA Industrial Forum focused on the challenges in today’s construction industry, with potential new solutions coming out of research labs around the world. What are the needs for mobility at the construction site? How should materials be moved? How should data be provided to onsite workers, and how do we keep people safe? What can be done remotely, and what other tactics can make construction resilient to weather? These and other challenges were presented, with an opportunity to ask questions in live and interactive sessions with the speakers. This forum was developed in partnership between the RAS Industrial Activities Board and the Construction Industry Institute, a leader in new approaches for this fundamental sector of modern life."
