ACTOR Streamlines Construction with Automation and AI

ACTOR webinar

Automatic Coordination of Construction Actors—ACTOR is a research project that aims to solve critical construction problems with real-time situational awareness. A trustworthy situation picture is a prerequisite for effective planning, task management, and logistics. Productivity improvements also directly impact a construction project’s carbon emissions.

The March 27, 2024, ACTOR webinar discussed how robotics, sensors, AI, machine learning, extended reality, and standardized data make real-time situational awareness possible. ACTOR’s company partners showcased the technologies developed during the project.
