Fixing Cracks in Concrete: Revolutionizing Jobsites with AI and IoT Technologies

Revolutionizing Jobsites with Advanced AI and IoT Technologies


Concrete is the second most-used substance on Earth (behind water); it’s everywhere from roads and sidewalks to bridges and skyscrapers. Now, what if we told you, concrete still comes with age-old weaknesses? Not only is it prone to cracking, bringing down structures we are supposed to trust, it also played a surprisingly large role in rising global temperatures over the last century. With a solution ecosystem encompassing advanced IoT sensors that are changing the face of concrete data, combined with predictive AI-based models, Giatec is revolutionizing the concrete industry one jobsite at a time. Let’s bring concrete to the 21st century.
