Welcome to Robotics & Intelligent Construction Automation Lab (R.I.C.A.L.)

The Robotics & Intelligent Construction Automation Lab is directed by Dr. Yong K. Cho, associate professor of the School of Civil and Environmental Enginering at Georgia Institute of Technology. The lab is located in Room 214 of Bunger-Henry Building, and is equipped with hybrid 3D LiDAR system, mobile robots, infrared camera, RFID and bluetooth sensors, Oculus Rift, and smart board. Main research interests are in the area of construction automation, data acquisition system design, real-time monitoring of the built environment, building information modeling (BIM), sustainable energy, construction safty and training, and roadway construction and maintenance.
