Future of labor in construction: Robot capable of installing drywall panels

We have been seeing more and more robots designed to carry out more complex and human tasks. This is an advanced example.

If we focus on the possibilities of the HRP-5P, the researchers responsible for its development have managed to create a robot capable of carrying out all kinds of useful tasks in the construction and maintenance sector. As you can see in the video that we show you later, the HRP-5P can install panels of plasterboard with an amazing ease in a matter of a few minutes.

But undoubtedly, what has most caught the attention of this robot is that it does not require human intervention, since he is able to lift the panels himself, take them to the right place and install them using a screwdriver. To achieve this, the HRP-5P makes use of a combination of environment detection and object recognition
