Imagine the black box on the flat bed to represent a Maintenance Module. Each interchangeable Maintenance Module will be equipped to perform specific road maintenance tasks, such as crack sealing, cone picking and placing, painting, and road inspection. Robots are designed for repeatable, labor intensive applications...

The Robotic Maintenance Vehicle is a human driven vehicle equipped with industrial robotics and maintenance modules which together perform various standard road maintenance applications, such as crack sealing, cone picking and placing, painting, and road inspection. The RMV performs each application through vision guided AI, which...

Automation not only improves safety but also increases productivity and quality while decreasing operating costs over time! Taking the principles we have learned in manufacturing and applying these to standard road maintenance practices will produce the same outcome. Implementing robotics removes any human variation, which improves over all consistency and accuracy.   Follow us on our LinkedIn and Facebook pages throughout the week! We will also be recapping with a weekly email, we’d love you to...

A substantial portion of Ohio Department of Transportation and U.S. Department of Transportation budgets are spent on maintaining roads and highways. Transportation budgets are supported by taxpayer dollars. What if there was a way to increase safety and decrease the overall cost required to maintain roads...

ONE death is enough of a reason to implement change. According to US Bureau of Labor Statistics there were 124 work zone worker fatalities in 2018 alone in the United States. Automation has immensely impacted safety and safety culture in manufacturing and supply chain in a...

While we have been faced with many obstacles due to COVID-19, our team has been following the guidelines provided by Ohio Department of Health and adapted to working from home. With many of our customers shutting down and faced with potential layoffs we redirected our talented...

With the help of Jake Ward and Ward Law Office LLC, we successfully filed a patent for the #RMV. As of March 19th, the Robotic Maintenance Vehicle is officially patent pending! We encourage you to follow our story from initial inception through design, assembly, and testing phases of our #RMV prototype that...

Following the initial inception, Todd Hendricks put pen to paper and the first concept sketch took shape. Industrial automation has taught us the importance of innovation through modular and multifunctional design. The initial 'Robotic Road Sealer' quickly grew to include other routine road maintenance applications, including...

We have taken our core competencies in automation and robotics outside of the factory and onto the road! Transforming the tools we implement every day to advance automation in manufacturing, we’re applying to routine road maintenance practices. We encourage you to follow our story from initial...

As an Authorized Systems Integrator for FANUC America we are experts in Robotics and Automation, specifically in the areas of fluid dispense, vision systems, line tracking, modular designs, and systems integration. We have repeatedly found that automation increases safety, and realized that our experiences in these...
