Hadrian X robot builds its first outdoor building

Fastbrick Robotics (ASX: FBR) have completed their first ever outdoor build with their Hadrian X robot.

Shares in Fastbrick soared in November 2018 when the company announced that their robot built a home structure in less than three days autonomously.

But the real test was whether the robot could do it in the elements outside of a warehouse.

Today Fastbrick proudly announced that Hadrian X completed Build1: Fastbrick's firs outdoor build of a three-bedroom, two-bathroom home structure.

The Hadrian X robot worked through the Western Australian summer, including at night, which Fastbrick says demonstrates the robot's ability to work through a range of environmental factors "with precision".

Fastbrick chief executive Mike Pivac says Build1 is historic for the company.

"Completion of our first outdoor build is a significant achievement in itself, and to be able to demonstrate that the machine can work in extreme heat and with strong winds is pleasing and is exactly what we wanted so far from our ongoing testing program," says Pivac.

"We will now take some time to make improvements to the Hadrian X based on the results of our testing program to date, and we are looking forward to putting the machine through some further rigorous testing in the winter months."

Today's announcement comes just days after Fastbrick and Brickworks entered into an agreement to manufacture the concrete blocks used by the Hadrian X robot.
