The solution proposed by Dahir Insat is the complete robotization of pothole patching.The machine itself looks like an elongated garbage truck, without the crushing mechanism on the back – that’s where the business end of this little number is, for different tools that can be swapped out.
The fully robotic machine is placed on a truck that brings it to the hole, then the operator marks the hole using a remote control, after which the machine switches to automatic mode and does not require further assistance.
The hole is cut, treated and filled with a pre-prepared filling that is sunk into the place of damage. It looks more like a visit to the dentist than a classic road machine.
First, the machine starts out using a mill head that mills out around the pothole in a circular, or rectangular shape.It then mills out the interior turning the asphalt into small pieces. Once the task is complete, the drilled-out asphalt is removed by vacuum.
This project is presented virtually since there is no prototype , not even in the experimental phase, that would allow the viability of Dahir Insaat’s proposal.
