Named QuicaBot – short for Quality Inspection and Assessment Robot – it can move autonomously to scan a room in about half the time taken for manual inspection, using high-tech cameras and laser scanners to pick up building defects like cracks and uneven surfaces.
The robots can upload 3D data of the scans to the cloud and inform the human operator, who can then inspect critical and complex defects.
Designed to conduct quality finishing inspection based on Singapore's Building and Construction Authority (BCA) Quality Assessment System CONQUAS-9 Standard.

Q. How does the QuicaBot carry out its function?
A. The QuicaBot uses a camera for visual inspection, and scans and maps rooms autonomously or semi-autonomously. It functions as a device to detect hollowness and wall evenness. It also measures floor slope and wall alignment.
Q. How does the QuicaBot increase efficiency?
A. The QuicaBot assists an inspector in capturing data for the robot as well as helping them to do the various checks above, making them more efficient in their job.
Q. How is the QuicaBot controlled?
A. Using a remote and mobile app, users are able to control the QuicaBot easily and conveniently.
