As expected of twins, Mor and Tzach Ram-On have quite a bit in common. Not only did they grow up together, but they both also chose to study engineering at the Technion. Upon graduation (Aerospace and Civil engineering), they embarked on a career in the field – Mor at “Rafael Advanced Defense Systems”, specializing in guidance, navigation, and control of autonomous aerial platform – and Tzach at “Electra Construction” as a site manager. While on the construction site, Tzach noticed that the crane was not working at its former capacity. Something about its movement was off. He conducted a quick investigation into the matter and discovered that his regular and experienced crane operator was absent, thus he was replaced with another, less skilled crane operator. It was then that Tzach realized that there was a problem: the quality of the crane operator impacts the quality of the work and, as such, the rate of construction and related costs. When sharing this with Mor, his twin jested and said: “So let’s build an autonomous crane”. Intsite (Intelligent Site & Insight) was thus born in 2018, aiming to replace human-operated heavy machinery with autonomous heavy machinery capable of functioning independently, just like the autonomous car that we’ve all been hearing about and waiting for.
Ever since, the company started working on additional vertical for heavy machinery like excavators, dump trucks, wheel loaders, forklift, bulldozers, and alike.
