Pix4D and Axians have partnered on a digital twin service
This partnership will enable Axians to integrate this cutting-edge technology into its offerings, and Pix4D to capitalize on Axians' expertise to provide BIM services that are fully adapted to the specific nature and evolution of telecom infrastructures.
Digital twin technology creates a single source of truth for industrial and real estate assets. Digital twins are often used in the telecom industry as they provide a variety of benefits for owners and operators:
- Higher accuracy in asset management,
- Increased transparency and flow of information,
- Advanced real-time and preventive analytics,
- Advanced and maintenance planning
- Improved safety for inspection teams,
Pix4D is a leader in the applied photogrammetry industry and offers BIM services through the Pix4D Digital Construction Team (DCT), headed by Dr. Jacques Khouri, a BIM specialist, and digitization expert. Pix4D will leverage its digital twin and AI technology to automatically identify critical telecom assets and their dimensions. The DCT will create 3D BIM models for use in new 5G antenna installation, maintenance, and more. Telecommunication assets will be accurately recreated in smart 3D models.
Statements from Axians & Pix4D
“One of the major challenges of our customers, operators and managers of telecommunications infrastructure, has always been the accurate knowledge of their assets (towers, rooftop, ...) in order to optimize them and enhance them. Axians' expertise combined with Pix4D’s digital modeling services will provide our customers with more reliable access, faster and better control of the evolution of their infrastructures.” says David Lammens, CEO of Axians Infrastructures and telecommunications in France.
Dr. Christoph Strecha, Pix4D’s co-founder and CEO, comments: “Pix4D is ideally positioned to deliver BIM modeling services. Our aim is to provide a high-value end-to-end solution that, with our well-established machine learning techniques and algorithms, we can use to substantially reduce the costs, duration, and complexity of creating BIM and digital twin models. Our results will provide Axians with 2D CAD drawings, 3D models, as well as 4D through to 7D-level BIM models. This is an opportunity for our companies to innovate and we look forward to a mutually beneficial partnership.”
Pix4D and Axians are excited to announce this partnership as it brings cutting-edge modern technology to one of France's biggest operators and innovators and allows Pix4D to enhance BIM services based on advanced machine-learning algorithms.
