Q-Bot provides warmer, better homes by insulating cold and draughty floors. A layer of insulation hidden beneath the floorboards means a much cosier home and a pleasant surprise when the energy bill arrives.
Q-Bot provides warmer, better homes by insulating cold and draughty floors. A layer of insulation hidden beneath the floorboards means a much cosier home and a pleasant surprise when the energy bill arrives.
Q-Bot does this by using robotic devices that can remotely apply insulation without needing to rip the building apart. To ensure quality, dynamic 3D maps are created, verifying the installation and allowing easy identification of faults or hazards.
Q-Bot's intelligent tools allow operators to safely go where no person has gone before, extending their senses and reach. By removing the direct link between operator and tool, Q-Bot will help make human capabilities limitless.
