VERTLINER is a field-robotics startup developing autonomous robotic systems for the precise indoor assessment of building assets.


 Athens, Greece

Established in 2020

Teaser of the Company

VERTLINER has as a mission to bridge the digital gap between the building assets and the with key stakeholders of the AEC industry, enabling remote access to any indoor areas of any infrastructure.

VERTLINER has the vision to automate the assessment activities in indoor environments, transforming any infrastructure into a smart mega-asset that encapsulates autonomous monitoring activities.

VERTLINER has tested, validated and adopted Digital Village’s blockchain-based solution in the scope of BlockStart:

Why has the company decided to implement the solution: The problem is focusing on the low visibility of assessment activities around the MEP systems, as part of the building’s core infrastructure. Such indoor application systems are crucial, because they are improving the quality of life within buildings. We envision a DLT solution to be connected with our platform in order to streamline the supply chain process starting from the project site, moving to the factory, and extending it to an embedded form of digital assets that belong to the virtual replica of a Smart City.

Added value of the solution to the company: VERTLINER is developing autonomous robotic systems enabling an end-to-end process capable of remotely connecting the main contractor of a building under development, with the service providers, and the manufacturers of MEP systems. Succeeding to embed the digital twin of the asset within the digital form of the building as part of a virtual Smart City, would achieve safer operation for users, compliance for regulatory agencies, cost-efficiencies for facility managers, and transparency for manufacturers. Furthermore, such integration is expected to reduce the frictional transaction cost between the contractor, facility manager, while generating digital assets that could potentially become subjects with incremental monetary value.

What has been done during BlockStart’s pilot stage: The KPI was defined according to the particular needs of VERTLINER’s robotic solution. Embedding the digital twin of the asset within the digital form of the building as part of new assets in a virtual form of Smart Cities.

VERTLINER’s achievements

The participation of VERTLINER in the BlockStart program as an end-user SME, provided incremental value to the way the digital outcomes of our robotic operations could act as the connecting link to a digital representation of building assets that could exist as parts of the digital replica of Smart Cities, encapsulating digital operations as actually run in the physical world.
