A start-up tech company want’s to take self driving technology to the construction site, by adapting the technology for excavators and construction machinery.

The company wants to modify excavators and other construction machinery to be autonomous, so that human labour can be freed up to undertake more complex tasks.The compay says this will address the shortage of trained drivers.

The company called Built Robotics said tuning excavators with technology that allow them to drive themselves and do basic tasks such as earth  moving, will leave more time for skilled drivers to do the most complicated tasks that require more expertise.
