Automating Construction Progress Monitoring with Husky UGV and NC State

With the development of automation and robotics, the modernizing world has reached unprecedented levels of productivity. While this is best seen in industries like manufacturing, others, like construction, have struggled to see the same dramatic improvement. A team of researchers from the Construction Automation and Robotics Lab (CARL) at NC State University, in collaboration with the Active Robotic Sensing (ARoS) Laboratory and the Laboratory for Interpretable Visual Modeling, Computing and Learning (iVMCL), believes that the lack of advanced automation in construction is to blame.

AI: Friend or Foe?

Engineers may worry that artificial-intelligence (AI) and machine-learning (ML) algorithms will eventually replace them as circuit designers. A panel session, including Paul Franzon at the 2019 IEEE International Microwave Symposium tackled that touchy subject. The opinions were generally positive for engineers, but panelists acknowledged that AI/ML will change analog/RF engineering jobs but not necessarily replace engineers.
