Robotic bricklayer can lay 1,000 bricks an hour

AGC SmartBrief | Jun 26, 2015

A robotic machine can lay 1,000 bricks an hour and could build 150 houses a year. Developed by aeronautical and mechanical engineer Mark Pivac, the machine uses computer aided design to create a 3D placing program and figures out each brick's location in relation to a fixed-point. Then the robot's telescopic boom starts laying the bricks. Pivak hopes to commercialize the system in the coming years. Perth Now (Australia) (06/25)
