Pix4D CraneCamera solution - a fully autonomous alternative to drones

Drone data without drone - Pix4D Crane Camera solution for daily as-built updates

Why the CraneCamera solution can be a great alternative to drones in construction

About the webinar

Flying drones isn’t always easy in construction. Before taking off, you have to obtain flight permission, find a pilot, and of course, check the weather forecast. All that requires a proper planning and something as simple as a rainshower can throw off the entire project.

Or what if you need to fly drones in a congested area? That’s not safe - and often not allowed. The Pix4D CraneCamera can collect aerial data without a drone.

The CraneCamera solution works autonomously without needing to fly and in any weather. You only need a crane to get high-quality data, every day.

In this webinar, Pix4D and The Beck Group have teamed up to present the CraneCamera solution and explain how The Beck Group used it in a congested downtown project to verify concrete slab installation, coordinate material deliveries, and track the site progress to avoid any potential mistakes.

Key learnings:

  • Why the CraneCamera can be a great alternative to drones in construction;
  • The applications of the CraneCamera;
  • How to use and integrate the deliverables into your construction/BIM workflows;
  • How The Beck Group were using the CraneCamera solution on a daily basis.
