Founded by a registered P.E. and a NASA engineer, Rugged Robotics is a Houston-based, construction technology company. They’re building practical solutions to the real-world problems that contractors face on a daily basis. Their first product tackles the challenge of field layout and replaces slow, error-prone, manual layout with a “layout Roomba” that marks fully-coordinated A/E designs directly onto unfinished floors. Their team of five full-time engineers have been prototyping and testing for 18 months, and they’re currently engaging on early pilot projects.
