A San Francisco-based robotics company is developing fully driverless bulldozers and excavators to make construction safer and more effective.
Noah Ready-Campbell, the founder and CEO of tech startup Built Robotics, may be at the forefront of making the construction industry more technologically advanced, as the company had raised $15 million according to a CNBC report in October. Built Robotics’ website reads: “We are building the future of construction.”
“The idea behind Built Robotics is to use automation technology make construction safer, faster and cheaper,” Ready-Campbell said in an Associated Press report Monday.
“The robots basically do 80 percent of the work, which is more repetitive, more dangerous, more monotonous. And then the operator does the more skilled work, where you really need a lot of finesse and experience.”
