KEWAZO, A Robotics Startup, Is Lifting The Scaffolding Industry – “Liftbot” Boosts Productivity & Site Safety

Munchen, Germany – Kewazo, a German startup, is literally lifting the scaffolding industry to new heights. The fresh product just landed a cool $5M for advancement. Good news for the industry as its fresh digitized dashboard and insights will be a hit on sites everywhere soon shortly.

Construction has seen an era shift that has been moving rapidly this year and everyday we are reading about more and more great products finally coming to fruition. Exciting times for the industry! Lets look at what LIFTBOT is all about courtesy of …

Data Analytics and Digital Twin

LIFTBOT is equipped with multiple sensors that transmit real-time data about the status of the project to the KEWAZO Onsite Platform. Machine Learning algorithms analyze accumulated data in order to provide automated project planning and resource utilization that is cost effective.

Predictive Analytics

Sensor data provides visibility into the robotic system’s status and remote customer support service. Predictive analytics enables the reduction of downtime and breakdowns while optimizing maintenance costs and customer experience.

Autonomous Navigation and Control

LIFTBOT is autonomously sent to its predetermined destination via one-touch technology, where materials are (un-) loaded before it returns to the ground location. Workers can perform other tasks while LIFTBOT operates, rather than constantly pressing buttons to control lifts and hoists manually.

With minimum setup time and maximum flexibility LIFTBOT can be installed in less than 20 minutes with minimal space requirements and operates entirely wirelessly: via remote control and batteries.
