Have you Seen TyBot® on the Road?
Updated: Feb 7, 2019
Take a look at what the TyBot, LLC team has been doing and where we are going.
TyBot, LLC, a Pittsburgh based robotics company, has been on the move attending high profile events to showcase their innovative heavy civil construction robot, TyBot®.
This past week, TyBot, LLC team members participated in the Associated Pennsylvania Constructors (“APC”) Annual Construction Innovation Conference held at the Penn Stater Hotel & Conference Center on April 12th and 13th. Co-founders Stephen Muck and Jeremy Searock presented TyBot, an autonomous rebar-tying robot for bridge deck construction, to industry wide experts including FHWA and PennDOT representatives. Stephen Muck shared “Our presentation and live demonstration were well received by the attendees. Industry representatives from owners to contractors are recognizing that innovative solutions like TyBot are ready today to provide the extra productivity needed to meet growing demands.”
The TyBot, LLC Co-founders also attended the 2018 Engineering News-Record (“ENR”) Award Celebration held in New York City on April 5th and 6th, which honored the Top 25 Newsmakers of 2017 at the Hilton Midtown Hotel. Stephen Muck, Co-Founder & CEO of TyBot, LLC was among the award winners for his vision “to partner with the robotics world to improve construction with a rebar-tying robot, TyBot”. ENR selects winners based on the "best interests of the construction industry and the public in 2017; they innovate, they overcome challenges, and their accomplishments offer benefits that will have an impact beyond their own companies or institutions.”
There is no denying that Pittsburgh is one of the leading cities in the United States for artificial intelligence technology start-ups, with the possibility of surpassing Silicon Valley in the near future. The Pittsburgh Entrepreneur Forum used this information as their inspiration to host their Third Annual Robotics event, “Land, Water, Air…Pittsburgh Robotics are Everywhere!” panel discussion. Jeremy Searock, Co-founder and President of TyBot, LLC, kicked off the event by presenting TyBot to more than 150 leaders representing Pittsburgh’s academic, research, business, and investor communities. Panel moderator, David Kalson, was quoted as saying, “We believe that no other robotics cluster, whether it’s Boston or Silicon Valley, has the diversity of robotics companies that Pittsburgh has been able to build.”
Make sure you keep an eye out for TyBot, LLC at the BuiltWorlds Machines Conference on May 3rd, in Chicago, Illinois. Jeremy Searock will be featured as a speaker in the “Next Generation of Robotic Equipment” panel discussion slated for 11:00am at Kasbeer Hall in Corboy Law Center at Loyola University of Chicago.
