  • Abstract:
    Research in construction automation and robotics has increased in popularity over the past few years. Although interest is high in the research and education communities, sustaining robust programs is difficult due to the diverse interests of constituents associated with the research and development process. The premise of this paper is that there is a need to develop and maintain strong construction automation and robotics programs in the United States. One way to assist in this goal is to address the concerns of the constituencies of research and development by focusing on a process leading to implementation. The interests of the constituents of the research and development process are examined, a process leading to implementation is presented, and results from a recently completed research project are presented as an example of the process. It is concluded that a systematic approach such as the one presented will enhance the success of construction automation and robotics programs as well as lead to faster adoption of advanced technologies for field applications.
