Roxi is the first AI algorithm created for concrete testing. Its applications include optimizing concrete mixtures, reducing cement usage and concrete’s CO2 footprint, predicting concrete properties, and proactively detecting anomalies in concrete performance and testing.
SmartMix is a web-based dashboard that operationalizes Roxi’s skills, enabling producers to adjust the proportions of their mixes and predict how such changes influence their concrete performance in terms of its compressive strength and other criteria.
