Taking place from April 8-14, bauma has seen a multitude of announcements. From AI (artificial intelligence), to GNSS (global navigation satellite system), to grade control, and more, the event has highlighted manufacturers making big moves to advance construction equipment, all with the help of emerging technologies.
The construction industry is facing a worker shortage, and here is a recommendation to combat it: Let the robots rise up in construction—and at the same time reskill the human workers right alongside the machines.
Perhaps one of the most difficult questions to answer is this: What are the best software, hardware, tool, and equipment companies that serve the construction industry? Constructech has been answering this question since 2009 with its annual Constructech 50—and since that time only six stalwarts have remained on the list.
Over on Constructech TV, Peggy Smedley has been talking a lot about what is a smart connected city—and what is needed from the construction community to help build intelligent buildings, homes, and infrastructure. I am a strong proponent that one of the best ways to learn how to do something is by looking at other examples and by doing. So for this blog, allow me to take you inside some smart homes and neighborhoods.
