KUALA LUMPUR, April 4 (Bernama) -- Singapore industrial AI & robotics companies, H3 Dynamics and ELID Technology, have entered a commercial and technical partnership that ties H3 Dynamics’ AI-enabled façade assessments to ELID’s robotic façade repair gondolas.
According to a statement, the combined technologies create the first end to end automation solution covering both inspection and remediation activities on tall buildings.
This increases worker safety, while scaling up much needed maintenance in large-scale cities with aging populations and thousands of aging structures.
“Our partnership with ELID exemplifies a powerful end to end innovation, where robots are not just capable of acquiring data, but also execute repair tasks identified by our AI analytics platform. This will make smart cities even smarter - bringing building automation to the next level,” said CEO of H3 Dynamics, Taras Wankewycz.
Meanwhile, CEO of ELID Technology International, Kenneth Wong said: “We are proud to have H3 Dynamics’ market leading 'Facade Inspector' solution tied to AXIOBOTS® facade robots. This provides clients with an easy all-in-one-solution for their façade maintenance needs.”
Launched three years ago, H3 Dynamics’ H3 Zoom® platform applies AI and workflow automation to help digitise health assessments of various structures and sites, with a first solution aimed at modernising dangerous façade inspection work.
This year, Singapore enacted the Periodic Façade Inspection regime, making it compulsory to inspect buildings over 13 metres high and over 20 years of age every seven years.
Anticipating this development, Singapore’s JTC Corporation partnered with H3 Dynamics to develop an all-digital façade inspection solution as part of a national innovation initiative, now seen as the most advanced solution of its kind. The AI-enabled solution has been applied to over 900 buildings so far in Singapore alone.
ELID’s AXIOBOTS® robotic gondolas bring façade maintenance automation to the next level: they can paint, grout, clean, check for waterproofing and provide visual inspection.
Combining AXIOBOTS® with H3 Zoom AI-enabled platform fully automates the physical inspection and remediation process, linking precise positioning and qualification of defects with automated NDT physical checks and repair.
H3 Dynamics and ELID are expected to begin trials of the combined solution in Singapore with JTC Corporation and Frasers Property Singapore, as a springboard to other megacities and countries with dense urban city-centres.
