Automated Rebar Tying Drones
Eohan George, CEO, CEO - SkyMul

SkyTy developed by SkyMul is an autonomous rebar tying drone programed to identify rebar intersections without cad files, site plans or manual programming. Fast to deploy, SkyTy can be setup in minutes and dispatched in swarms enabling parallel work and increased production. At nearly twice the speed of human labor SkyTy has the potential to provide an 84% labor savings and 13% cost reduction.
