Robotics & AI
ACR is a world leading innovator of autonomous robotic equipment. Our robots are transforming the construction industry by filling the skilled labor gap and increasing overall productivity of the construction industry. Our products give construction firms the ability to meet a rapidly growing demand.
Advanced Construction Robotics, Inc. utilizes robotics and artificial intelligence to innovate and commercialize a wide range of autonomous products to lead the
long-term transformation of the construction industry towards Improved Safety, Increased Profits, Enhanced Productivity, and Reduced Schedule Risk.
Removing workers from exposure to risks is the highest priority when planning work.
Performing the same work with less man-hours through automating repetitive tasks statistically will improve safety performance.
Autonomous robots can work through extreme conditions that put human workers at risk, such as extreme heat, or heavy rains.
Reduction of man-hour direct costs also reduces associated payroll tax and workers compensation insurance costs.
Increasing capacity through utilizing robotic automation brings the opportunity to increase work volume, revenue and profits.
Performing work faster reduces the costs for time related expenses like staff and rented support equipment.
Reducing schedule durations and increasing productivity certainty helps to reduce risks that may be carried in a bid for liquidated damages.
Utilizing the existing workforce and robotics allows for work to be completed faster, giving companies the flexibility to catch up or get ahead of schedule.
Higher productivity helps a project keep moving in the face of worker shortages.
Improving the productivity of the existing workforce through robotics increases the value of each and every worker.
REDUCED SCHEDULE RISK
Robotics brings consistency and certainty to production levels. Reducing the amount of uncertainty associated with work production reduces the risk attached to project schedules.
Due to increased productivity, automated tasks can be completed faster.
Exposure to peak seasonal staffing demands can be drastically reduced by utilizing robotics to fill the labor gap.
ACR’s robots will continue to solve today’s construction challenges assisting the workforce to meet the rapidly growing demand.
Unfilled Construction Positions
Fraction of Poor Roads and Bridges
Amount saved by 1% productivity improvement
As of April, 2019, as many as 434,000 construction labor positions were left entirely vacant.
Two-thirds of US roads are in
less-than-good condition and nearly 143,000 bridges need repair or improvement, the Transportation Department estimates.
If construction labor productivity improves by just 1%, the world's construction industry will save $100 Billion dollars.
As ACR's first product, TyBot was originally built to assist bridge deck construction. Follow-up TyBot products are planned to serve new markets such as reinforced concrete roadways, pre-cast concrete, ground slabs, and more.
ACR is currently developing its second product called IronBot. IronBot can work independently of, or complementary to TyBot, and will autonomously carry and place rebar for horizontal concrete applications.
