Ground-based autonomous vehicles stand to help improve productivity and reduce costs in the construction space.
Robotaxis for consumers have yet to take off as developers struggle to prove that vehicles are safe enough for human passengers.
Until then, self-driving developers are looking at off-road applications for autonomous tech. These applications don’t operate on public roads nor do they involve human passengers — making them safer and typically easier to train.
One off-road application that’s come into the spotlight of late is construction, an industry that historically has received little attention from the tech space.
