Episode Sixteen – Robotics Part 3

On Thursday, November 4th, 2021 Episode sixteen of the BILT Academy Podcast went live. Yes, we did return a tad delayed from our summer break but for a good reason, we wanted to accommodate the busy schedule of our interviewee! 

For episode sixteen we invited Anthony Meijer,  a student taking Built Environment at the Hanze University of Applied Sciences in Groningen, Netherlands to hop on board as guest narrator to this month’s topic. 

In this month’s episode, we once again dive into the world of robotics. This time it was Anthony and his research that’s based on how the AEC industry can utilize robotics in construction that lead out show. To get his urgent questions on the topic answered he reached out to Brian Ringley of Boston Dynamics. 

Here is more information about this month’s interviewee: 

  1. Brian Ringley, Construction Technology Manager at Boston Dynamics.

Brian Ringley is a construction technologist at Boston Dynamics where he manages Spot autonomy product development for dynamic sensing in changing environments like construction sites. Before coming to Boston Dynamics, he was a construction automation researcher in commercial real estate where he piloted emerging construction robotics products and stood up a factory for the industrialized construction of office space
