Construction and Robotic Technology Converge at MassRobotics Signature Series Event

BOSTON, MA / ACCESSWIRE / November 3, 2020 / MassRobotics will host Robotics in Construction, the final signature event in a series of semi-virtual seminars, on November 12 at 2 p.m. Eastern. The event, created in collaboration with Autodesk, will provide attendees with the latest robotic innovations impacting the construction industry, and the new technologies available from Massachusetts robotics startups.

“MassRobotics’ Robotics in Construction event brings together thought leaders from our regional robotics ecosystem and executives from the construction industry in a focused way to discuss challenges in the building and construction field,” said Tom Ryden, executive director, MassRobotics. “It is our goal to help bridge the connection between industry needs and the innovative technology offerings our residents provide. The series is a fantastic way to connect the robotics community and construction industry together in a way that addresses solutions currently available and a forward-looking view of what will transform the industry. Robotics and artificial intelligence can dramatically disrupt this more traditional industry.”

The construction industry is one of the least automated industries and features manual-intensive labor as a primary source of productivity, creating opportunity to implement more automation through robotics.

Participating companies will share their insights around technology adoption in construction and showcase a wide variety of technologies including drone manipulation, pipe inspection, robotic surveying and painting, crane load stabilization and human augmentation.

Speakers include:

  • Jim Lynch, Vice President & General Manager, Autodesk Construction Solutions
  • Jay Connolly, President, Connolly Brothers
  • Dan Linscott, Division Manager, Cummings Properties
  • Mike Zeppieri, Director, Innovation Services, Skanska USA
  • Raja Ghawa, Investment Associate, Suffolk Construction

Attendees will also hear from several innovative startups including Waymo, NeXtera Robotics, Human Dynamics, Watertower, Ascend Robotics, Vita Inclinata, FLX Solutions, Hyperion Robotics and Dephy.

Registration for this event is free and open to the public.

The seminar will be simultaneously streamed through GoToWebinar and on-site at MassRobotics’ Innovation Center. A playlist of previous Signature Series events can be found on YouTube.
