Brick Laying Robot Which Can Lay 1,000 Bricks Per Hour (Photos)

Who could ever believe that a time will come where robots will be used for laying bricks at a building site?

A robot is a machine programmed by robotic/computer researchers which are capable of carrying out complex actions automatically without human intervention.

We, humans, are wonderful creatures, even in the school of taught we are called a Higher Animal because of the complex nature of our brain. Even in the bible in Gen 1:26 God said, “Let us make humanity in our image and likeness. With the above statement from our maker, I believe we humans are a special kind of creature.

In this 21st century, Robots are now widely used in all areas of human life. Robots are now used in airports for carrying passengers luggage, in the medical field, in the military, in manufacturing companies, and even in agriculture.

Without further words, in this article, I will be showing you the brick-laying robots which are capable of laying 1,000 bricks per hour.

Those who are familiar with building construction will argue with me when I say the bricklaying process is one of the most tedious and time-consuming works on the site because it requires skilled labor and patience.

The two of the most popular bricklaying robots are SAM100 made by a team of US engineers and Hadrian X made by teams of Australian robotic researchers.

The bricklaying robots are very effective, it can lay 1,000 bricks in one hour at their fastest speed and 300 bricks at their regular speed which is equivalent to the work of two bricklayers per day.

The most interesting thing about these robots is that it requires little human intervention and can work day and night laying bricks at unimaginable speed.

How the robots work is very simple before embarking on a building site, 3D prints of the entire building plan are programmed into its sensors. The robots use sensors and a new technology called DST (Dynamic Stabilisation Technology) which it's used for precise positioning of bricks, vibration, and other environmental factors.Thanks for your time.
