Skule Lunch & Learn Presents “Toward Co-Robotic Construction: Visual AI to Ensure Co-Workers’ Safety”

January 11, 2023 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Virtual via Zoom


U of T Engineering Lunch & Learn

U of T Engineering alumni, join us for this monthly series.

Join fellow graduates to learn about exciting research in diverse subjects from U of T Engineering professors.

This month’s speaker will be Professor Daeho Kim (CivMinE)

Imagine walking onto a construction site to find robotics carrying out repetitive and laborious tasks while workers focused on supervising robotic systems and troubleshooting uncertainties, expending far less physical exertion.

With greater development in robotics and automation, the construction industry is gradually gearing up to embrace a range of robotic solutions to break through the sustained suffering from low productivity, poor safety, and the shortage of skilled young labourers. 

However, are these construction companies ready to deploy robots in these dynamic construction sites? Join us on January 11th as Professor Daeho Kim discusses a critical element in realizing co-robotic construction, worker safety, and how his research approach aims to foster a new workforce specialized in robot collaboration with ensured workers’ safety.  

Virtual: A Zoom link will be sent to all guests who registered.
Cost: Free
