Published April 28, 2017

An article on BuiltWorlds about the use on job-site robotics interviews Michael Silver, assistant professor of architecture and a member of the Sustainable Manufacturing and Advanced Robotic Technologies (SMART) program at UB.

“As a member of SMART, I’m exposed daily to new ways of thinking about technology and how new discoveries in other fields can be applied to the problem of building,” he said. “I often imagine, through my colleague’s research, novel ways of approaching the development of automated systems that can operate in conjunction with existing trades while enhancing productivity and alleviating the drudgery of dirty, difficult, dangerous work.”

Nils Napp and Karthik Dantu from the Department of Computer Science are also involved in the project.
