With the development of automation and robotics, the modernizing world has reached unprecedented levels of productivity. While this is best seen in industries like manufacturing, others, like construction, have struggled to see the same dramatic improvement. A team of researchers from the Construction Automation and Robotics Lab (CARL) at NC State University, in collaboration with the Active Robotic Sensing (ARoS) Laboratory and the Laboratory for Interpretable Visual Modeling, Computing and Learning (iVMCL), believes that the lack of advanced automation in construction is to blame.
