We will explore trends within the construction industry around jobsite automation through tools and robotics, as well as how the industry is continuing to adopt new technology to strengthen Health and Safety on the jobsite through wearable exoskeleton technology.

Hilti in the construction industry as a leader in innovation. Discussion around three trends we face in the construction industry: Need for increased productivity, health and safety continues to be a key industry focus, and a growing labor shortage. 

New innovations in diamond drilling and diamond sawing that allow workers to semi-autonomously run complex equipment through CutAssist technology that smartly guides the tool through the application freeing the operator from manual operation. We continue our journey into jobsite automation with our first venture into robotics, the Hilti Jaibot, a semi-autonomous robot that precisely positions, drills, and marks overhead anchor points for multiple trades. 

Hilti enters a new product category, Human Augmentation with the launch of our upper body exoskeleton, the EXO-O1 overhead exoskeleton. The goal of our exoskeleton technology is to reduce muscle fatigue on the upper body, particularly in the shoulder for workers that are in an overhead work orientation for large portions of the workday. EXO-O1 is just the first product, as we look to expand our offering into other areas to support a healthier work force.
