Using advanced technology has proven that we can produce more as compared to human power. For instance at the Auburn University campus, there is a robotic brick layer. Robots have been useful in lowering construction costs as well as providing a solution for inadequate labor force.

This is how Mises Wire describes the capacity of the robot:

“SAM100, a short for Semi-Automated Mason, will be the first of its kind in Alabama. It lays more than 3,000 bricks per day, using a conveyor belt and a robotic arm. Auburn University and Construction Robotics have partnered together to bring SAM to life in campus.”

According to the company which made these robotic masons are meant to increase the efficiency of human masons and not to replace them. This is because the robots can lay four times the number of bricks laid by a single human mason.
