Automation and Robotics in Germany are concentrated on concrete and asphalt mixing, concrete block and pipe making, precast concrete units and masonry prefabrication, control of mobile construction machinery, tunnelling and renewing of buildings and sanitation. The development has been going at a measured pace, because not all prerequisites to the introduction of these new technology are fulfilled in the construction industry , But extensive need for construction works, lack of workers and new demands and tasks stimulate the development performed by manufacturers, construction companies , universities and institutes.
