Now robots are taking jobs from BIN MEN: Volvo launches automated garbage trucks in Sweden
- Volvo has made a robot truck that makes picking up rubbish safer, swifter and more efficient – but it also cuts the manpower needed for the job.
- In March, an automated bricklaying robot was unveiled by New York-based company Construction Robotics.
- The robot, which can lay bricks six times faster than a human builder, is set to arrive on building sites in the UK within two years after already starting work in the US.
- But experts are worried that the bricklaying robots could make the jobs of thousands of UK builders redundant.
- ‘Robots will soon be on construction sites doing jobs that humans do, but faster,’ Richard Valentine-Selsey, a construction consultant, told the Times.
The Volvo truck (pictured), which has sensors that guide it around obstacles, is currently in a testing phase in northern Sweden.
