CoroWare Announces ARiCON Joint Venture ARICON, LLC to pursue automation and robotics in the construction industry
KIRKLAND, Wash., Sept. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CoroWare, Inc. (OTCQB: COWI) announced today it has partnered with a private investor to launch a joint venture – ARICON, LLC – that will develop and market mobile robot platforms, applications, and solutions for the construction industry.
The joint venture will initially be comprised of CoroWare, who will contribute mobile robotics development capabilities; and Lucas Snyder, a private investor who will contribute construction industry knowledge, expertise and customer relationships.
Since the 1960's, the construction industry saw great advances through the development of Computer Aided Architectural Design (CAAD) products and services. Through its combined expertise in construction and robotics, ARiCON intends to address the growing need for Computer Aided Production (CAP) solutions, with its initial focus on the development of robotic layout systems.
"Computer Aided Architectural Design has been the construction industry's best practice since the 1960s, said Lucas Snyder. "ARiCON's initial product offering will bridge the void between design and production and usher in a new sustainable future for the construction industry."
ARiCON plans to address this between design and production with a robotic layout system over the next six months, taking our product to market three months thereafter."
"We are excited to announce a joint venture with an investor who has a passion for bringing new advances into the commercial construction industry," said Lloyd Spencer, CEO of CoroWare. "Working together, we believe that ARiCON's floor layout robotic solutions will help address the productivity and efficiency challenges faced by the construction industry."
