The future is cooking in Madrid: drones that fumigate or construction with artificial intelligence

The future is already here and many technological advances are forged in the heat of the programs of the City of Madrid.

Another municipal space is Puerta Innovación, a center specializing in projects for energy, mobility and sustainability. The building, as announced by OKDIARIO, is next to the Puerta de Toledo and offers shared work spaces for hosting innovative projects and, on the other hand, rooms for holding events such as conferences, round tables, workshops, work sessions and Similar.


Among the most striking companies is ChecktoBuilda platform that uses artificial intelligence, 3D plans (with which the usual plans are replaced) and machine learning to reduce cost overruns and temporary construction delays. It is an intelligent control system. This advanced control system validates what has been planned versus what has been executed, detects the progress of a work or detects possible deviations from the works with up to 1 centimeter precision in just 13 minutes of calculations.

Finally, there is the Madrid Food Innovation Hub, a pioneering entrepreneurship center for food issues in Europe and located in Villaverde. There is only one similar one in the whole world, in Tel Aviv. It is an initiative focused on the agri-food value chain.

Food will experience a revolution after the introduction of this type of healthy products in our diets.

The International Lab (iLab), an internationally oriented municipal innovation center housed in a 19th century building designed to house the old laboratory, has become a hotspot for innovation. Among other ideas, he has promoted maedcorea company specialized in digital transformation that offers artificial intelligence, mechatronics, 3D modeling, metaverse and data analysis. They are in charge of all phases of the project, from the preliminary design and manufacture of the prototype to the start-up and launch on the market.

This company is developing an inspection and maintenance robot that moves across flat surfaces (floors, walls and ceilings) to analyze spaces that a technician cannot reach. Reducing the risk and cost of these tasks. The applications of this product are emerging in the energy world. On the one hand, for pipe inspections and, on the other hand, in the nuclear world for decommissioning, measuring radiation from nuclear power plants, thus avoiding the risk of taking measurements by technicians.
