A Mobile Robot For Detecting Concrete Cracks

Quality management is important in the construction industry and with urbanisation rates rising rapidly, building companies are under pressure to build faster without compromising on quality and safety.

The challenge

A leading engineering firm was looking to utilise robotics to perform quality checks on concrete slabs. The task was being done by a surveyor with a crack measuring device after a concrete slab was poured. 

The firm wanted to find ways to improve safety and minimise physical injury or fatigue as looking for the smallest cracks on a vast area can be eye tiring.

The solution

We built an AI-powered robot that mapped the concrete slab area and scanned it for cracks as small as 0.1 millimetre.

Once the whole area was scanned, the robot generated a report for the surveyor which displayed the concrete slab map and pinpointed the exact location, width and length of detected cracks.

The outcomes

  • Quality checks were kept at the highest level.
  • All the cracks were detected and shared with surveyors.
  • The whole process could be audited at any time.
  • The same technology could be used in bridges or structures where human inspections are harder to perform.
