Rugged Robotics

Rugged Robotics is a construction technology company and their first product is a robot that tackles the challenge of field layout. It replaces slow, error-prone, manual layout with a small autonomous vehicle that marks fully coordinated architectural/engineering drawings directly onto the unfinished floors.

Traditionally, the field layout process involves using tape measures, chalk lines and surveying equipment to manually mark the locations of walls and mechanical systems. Rugged Robotics automates this process, using small robotic vehicles to mark fully coordinated designs on concrete floors. The rover can print much more information than is typically seen on a manual layout, which reduces the time workers spend reviewing plans, and as a result, they conduct faster, more accurate installations. This technology also helps eliminate potential oversights and errors in the manual layout, which can impact multiple trades and result in incorrect installation, delays and rework.

Another advantage of this technology is that it takes care of easily automated, often repeatable tasks, allowing people to focus on higher-value tasks that require their expertise.
