Postconstruction Building Inspection
2x faster to manual inspection
Scans 100% of a single unit
Accurate detection of defects
Quicabot is a construction robot that autonomously scans an entire room
Nanyang Technological University's Quicabot uses cameras and laser scanners to pick up building defects, such as hollowness, crack, evenness, alignments, and inclination, post completion of projects.
The University were given a real world problem in the construction industry
A faster and more accurate post-construction inspection project was proposed
According to Professor Chen I-Ming, Director of the Robotics Research Centre at NTU’s School of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering, and Co-Thrust Leader (Infrastructure Systems and Materials), ...
