The ‘why’

Road maintenance and repair processes need a major upgrade. Skills shortages, rising costs and longer repair timescales aren’t sustainable.

As electric vehicles rise in popularity, the weight our roads need to withstand to facilitate cleaner, greener travel is increasing too.

The world’s pothole problem is worsening, causing negative environmental impacts and placing huge financial strain on road asset owners and road users.

A combination of climate change effects and ageing roads means ever-increasing defects on road networks too.

That’s why Robotiz3d was founded. To invent more sustainable road maintenance solutions that play a part in facilitating a smarter, more sustainable future.
