AI promises to take a huge leap in manufacturing, productivity, eco-friendliness, and quality of life.
But research shows that 58 percent of manufacturers are actively interested and only 12 percent are implementing it.
How is artificial intelligence (AI) being used to make construction equipment safer and more efficient? Construction has always been a dangerous business and not always the most efficient. With heavy machinery involved, often uneven terrain, constant activity and the risk of human error, the threat of danger is never far away. And despite the ever-increasing focus on health and safety and use of technology on jobsites, there are still plenty of fatalities.
In the U.S., the number of deaths on site has risen 34 percent since 2010. In Japan around 300 deaths and more than 15,000 injuries were recorded in 2016, as reported by the Japan Construction Occupational Safety and Health Association. In the U.K., however, things are improving. By the end of March 2017, fatalities had reached all all-time low. Nevertheless, there were still 30 deaths on building sites in the 12 months, which is still well over the all-industry average of 0.43. But one death is one too many.
However, thanks to AI, companies are realizing the benefits that machines can bring, tackling not only health and safety issues in construction, but making work more efficient. The industry appears particularly well-suited to being able to be improved by the wonders of AI.
One interesting example is a tie-up between Japan’s Komatsu, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of construction and mining equipment, and U.S. tech company NVIDIA. The two firms are working together to use NVIDIA’s graphics processing units – essentially intelligent cameras – to visualize and analyze entire construction sites.
