Utility TransportationRobot could transfer a variety of construction materials, such as prefabricated elements, concrete packages and other heavy items. It is able to load and unload objects automatically, and only one operator is needed in the whole process. The robot is featured by contactless, safe and zero-turning-radius natures, which is much more efficient compared with traditional manual working methods.
Hong Kong Center for Construction Robotics (HKCRC), a scientific research and entrepreneurship platform, was established in 2020 as a joint collaborative effort among the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), University of California, Berkeley, and Tsinghua University. It belongs to the InnoHK project of the Hong Kong government. Led by Professor Li Zexiang, HKCRC gathered the world's top professors, scholars, and industrial resources to build an intelligent business incubator for the construction industry. HKCRC is committed to bringing advanced technologies such as robotics, automation, and AI into the construction industry and transformative changes to the construction industry.
