The newest device in construction isn’t a gargantuan piece of heavy machinery. Instead, it’s a neat little yellow robot that could be your Roomba’s more robust cousin. This three-wheeled portable robot prints complex construction site layouts in a fraction of the time it would take a team of humans.
Traditionally, construction layouts require the use of survey equipment and measurement tools to physically transfer a blueprint’s specifications onto the construction site. This critical step can take a team of two or three people several weeks, regardless of their experience level. There’s little room for error, since tearing down a partial build due to a measuring mistake is expensive and time-consuming. HP SitePrint incorporates HP’s printing expertise with digital mapping and robotics.
