The combined technologies create the first end-to-end automation solution covering both inspection and remediation activities on high-rise buildings. This increases worker safety, while intensifying much-needed maintenance in large-scale cities with aging populations and thousands of aging structures.

Launched 3 years ago, H3 Dynamics’ H3 Zoom ® platform applies AI and workflow automation to help digitize health assessments of various structures and sites, with first solution aimed at modernizing work inspection of dangerous facades. This year, Singapore enacted the Periodic Facade Inspection Regime, making it mandatory to inspect buildings over 13 meters high and over 20 years old every 7 years. Anticipating this development, JTC Corporation of Singapore has partnered with H3 Dynamics to develop a fully digital facade inspection solution as part of a national innovation initiative, now considered the most advanced solution in this industry. type. The AI-based solution has been applied to over 900 buildings so far in Singapore alone.

Until now, H3 Dynamics has relied primarily on drone cameras to feed its cloud-based reporting system with HD and thermal images. But over the past 2 years, its platform has expanded into “non-drone” data workflows, connecting to body-worn cameras, stationary cameras and various robots – including gondolas of robotic façade AXIOBOT S ® from EID. “H3 Zoom is site or asset agnostic. intelligence platform – we deliberately separated our software platform from our hardware developments so that we could open ourselves up to new possibilities,” says Shaun Koo, CTO and co-founder of H3 Dynamics’ H3 Zoom business. “Robotic gondolas can operate autonomously where drones cannot, especially in tight urban environments.

Following recent developments with CapitaLand, one of Southeast Asia’s leading real estate companies, the capabilities of H3 Dynamics’ H3 Zoom platform have expanded to automated repair cost estimates, vendor management as well as monitoring of repair projects. The platform seamlessly connects to third-party enterprise software, such as SAP’s work order management systems or Autodesk’s BIM tools, and has now partnered with HP Enterprise and Oracle to achieve even more customers. The company’s system is open, agnostic and can easily transition from assets anywhere in the field to customer operations.

ELID’s AXIOBOTS ® robotic gondolas take facade maintenance automation to the next level: they can paint, grout, clean, check for leaks and perform visual inspection. The combination of AXIOBOT S ® with the H3 Zoom AI platform fully automates the physical inspection and remediation process, combining precise positioning and defect qualification with automated NDT physical checks and repairs.

“Our partnership with ELID exemplifies powerful end-to-end innovation, where robots are not only able to acquire data, but also perform repair tasks identified by our AI analytics platform. It will make smart cities even smarter – taking building automation to the next level,” said Taras Wankewycz, CEO of H3 Dynamics.

“We are proud to have H3 Dynamics’ market leading ‘Facade Inspector’ solution linked to the AXIOBOTS ® facade robots. This provides customers with a simple all-in-one solution for their facade maintenance needs,” says Kenneth Wong, CEO of ELID Technology International.

H3 Dynamics and ELID are expected to begin trials of the combined solution in Singapore with JTC Corporation and Frasers Property Singapore, as a stepping stone to other megacities and countries with dense urban city centers.

About H3 Zoom by H3 Dynamics:

Seeing digitization as the main driver of autonomous robotics and drone operations, H3 Dynamics created the H3 Zoom platform in 2015. H3 Zoom is a cloud-based, cloud-independent autonomous analytics service platform. sensors that aggregates and transforms raw image and video files into cloud-based files. analytical insights. H3 Zoom’s wide range of expert services help expedite maintenance and compliance decision-making for site or structure owners, facility managers, and construction companies. The platform launched commercially in 2019 and has since become a market leader in remote analytics as a service in Southeast Asia, with ongoing global expansion through several partnerships, including SAP, Oracle and HP Enterprise.

About ELID technology:

ELID Technology has been a renowned manufacturer of access control solutions since 1993 and started development of AXIOBOTS ® in 2015. AXIOBOTS ® stand-alone painting system was completed in 2017 while its ability to clean, visual inspection and leak testing was launched in 2019. — making AXIOBOTS ® the world’s 1st automated 4-in-1 robotic facade solution, and a market leader in its field. AXIOBOTS ® has granted patents in 7 countries including Singapore and the United States while 6 other countries are pending. Deployable in all access modes such as suspended platforms, aerial lifts and BMUs, and with a growing number of projects in Singapore, ELID is aiming for global expansion.
