Portable Robotic Material Movement

Material movement is labour intensive and high risk. Could you develop cost effective and safe solutions that will move material in confined spaces?

The challenge

During building, construction, maintenance and operations projects, materials routinely require transportation throughout the working area.

Currently, material movement is labour intensive and high risk. Small spaces and restricted access mean most material movements require the use of mechanical aids and lifting equipment to allow items to be raised and transferred from one point to another - which may be elevated.

The company is looking for a company or companies that can find cost effective and safe solutions to these problems.

Example solutions may include exoskeletons or robot trolleys that can ascend and descend stairs. 

Application deadline

The deadline for applications 14 September 2021.
