Buildots AI tackles construction’s inefficiency

Buildots | April 08, 2020

With investors forecast to focus on contech when property development resumes, one Tel Aviv-based artificial intelligence construction technologies start-up has embarked on its global rollout starting in the UK. Buildots has pioneered on-site construction digitalised management, which it claims is the first of its kind in the industry. The product incorporates artificial intelligence and 3D computer vision technologies to provide on-site project teams with a platform which tracks activity and progress, optimises subcontractor productivity, increases on-site efficiency and reduces time and costs. The system works by site employees wearing a hard-hat-mounted 360 degrees camera during weekly or daily site walks, which records data. This data is uploaded, analysed using Buildots’ patent pending algorithms and compared with the project’s planned status. Project dashboards are then updated with latest status reports, 360 degrees site images and insights on any design or schedule discrepancies. Notifications of this information are then sent to relevant team members.
