A video published during the week by the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, and reported on by tech magazines including New Atlas, shows a humanoid robot, HRP-5P, pictured, putting up a sheet of plasterboard in about 30 seconds. The droid lifts the item off the top of a stack, carries it across a room to a stud frame…

Japanese construction robot demonstrates the future of building

A new video from AIST, Japan’s National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, shows a prototype robot designed to work on construction sites in situations where there is a shortage of human workers. The robot in undeniably slow but also strikingly accurate, suggesting a future where humanoid robots could replace even more human jobs.

The prototype demonstration shows the robot, dubbed HRP-5P, picking up a piece of plaster board and screwing it into a wall. This kind of flexible humanoid robot is designed to be able to replicate human motions in complicated construction environments.

This robot can help build houses ‘ and it could replace human construction roles in the future

Thankfully, the team at the Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) picked up the baton and has rolled out HRP-5P.

Break.

So as well as a Hadrian X, the robot bricklayer that can lay up to 1,000 bricks an hour, and AutoSaw, a robot that can cut and carry timber for walls, we now have HRP-5P for interior surfaces.

AIST said that HRP-5P “aims to autonomously replace human labor work and dangerous environment work”.

Is this the future of building? Japanese construction robot can pick up and drill in drywall by itself (albeit very slowly)

A Japanese robot that can pick up and drill in a drywall all by itself could provide a glimpse into the future of construction.

The smart robot, HRP-5P, uses object detection and motion planning to perform its construction tasks’ albeit very slowly.

It can use small hooks to grab the board, carry it across the room and then drill it in the desired spot.’

‘Robotics are common in manufacturing sites, such as auto plants, but those machines are stationery and carrying out the same task over and over, often in sterile and enclosed environments.
