We are incon.ai

We use machine vision and AI to enhance the manual craft of construction, giving builders digital tools to increase productivity and build the impossible.

Meet the team


Tim Sandy

Tim Sandy, CEO

Tim grew up in Upstate New York and got his Bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from Carnegie Mellon University. He then came to Switzerland, where he received his Master's degree and PhD in robotics from ETH Zurich, focusing on system design, sensor fusion, and visual tracking for robotic building construction.
He likes syncopated rhythms and uphill climbs.

Fadri Furrer

Fadri Furrer, CTO

Fadri studied Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at ETH Zurich and Linköpings Tekniska högskolan (LiTH). After receiving his Master's degree he worked for two startups and Bosch's robotics research center in Palo Alto and then joined the Autonomous Systems Lab at ETH Zurich, where he pursued his PhD in robotics focusing on 3D perception and reinforcement learning.
Often you find Fadri in weird positions doing Acroyoga.

Cyrill Hedinger

Cyrill Hedinger, Software Engineer

Cyrill studied Computational Science and Engineering at ETH Zurich with a focus first on computer graphics and later on computer vision and robotics. After completing his studies, he did an internship at Disney Research in Zurich, where he worked on image superresolution and resampling.
He enjoys alpine gaming and indoor hiking.

Ben Mansfield

Ben Mansfield, Global South Manager

Ben co-founded the Resilient Civic Design Collective (RCDC), based in South Africa and Switzerland, facilitating resilient and sustainable urban developments in under-resourced areas. The work has been promoted by UN agencies and the land development model integrated within government planning policy in South Africa. He studied Environmental Management at Manchester Metropolitan University, Landscape Architecture at Heriot-Watt University and later worked on ETH Chair of Architecture and Urban Design projects. Ben co-creates and manages projects in the Global South including the testing and implementing of technologies that significantly improve social, environmental and economic outcomes.
He enjoys gliding across water both liquid and frozen.

Leona Fischer

Leona Fischer, Social Media and PR Manager

Leona ensures that incon.ai is known and well represented in the world. While studying at the University of Zurich, she worked in a cinema as head programmer and event manager. After her degree, she joined a Zurich based press and promotion agency and went on to become part of our team in January 2022.
She’s enthusiastic about films and acrobatics.

Flavio Regenass

Flavio Regenass, Software Engineer

Flavio finished his Master's degree in Robotics, Systems and Control at ETH Zurich with a focus on computer vision and localization. In earlier internships he worked with mechatronic systems involving different sensor types.
"It never gets easier, you just go faster" is a motto he lives by, be it while ski touring, mountain biking or programming.


Marco Hutter

Marco Hutter

Marco is Assistant Professor for Robotic Systems at ETH Zurich. He is passionate about developing mobile robots and their intelligence to conduct some of the dirty and dangerous work. Since 2013, Marco and his team are working on robotic building construction technologies for example for drilling, plastering, excavation, masonry, or bricklaying.
Marco likes dogs – real and robotic ones.
