How does the Crane Camera solution work?

crane camera installed

Installation

  • Mounted on the jib of a tower crane and powered by it, the camera system is weatherproofed and designed to resist crane vibrations

  • Integrates a professional photogrammetric camera, mini-computer and GPS/IMU navigation sensors for remote control.

  • Wirelessly connected to the Pix4Dcloud Advanced software
crane camera capturing data

Capturing

  • Automatic image capturing during normal crane operation hours thanks to movement sensors and firmware.

  • No human intervention, no site disruption. Collection time and frequency are set up remotely.

  • Automatic image transfer to Pix4Dcloud Advanced via a 4G connection.
processing data

Processing

  • Daily planned or on-demand 2D and 3D deliverables.

  • Outputs available on the Pix4Dcloud Advanced software to be visualized, measured, annotated and compared with CAD drawings.

  • Sharing and download options for seamless integration with other software.

Grant Hagen

“Pix4D Crane Camera is the safest solution we found so far for capturing aerial imagery to be turned into 2D and 3D. It’s definitely a great alternative to drones for construction projects.”


Grant Hagen
VDC Manager - The Beck Group
Stijn Van Schaijk

“During our project, we found a misplaced scaffolding that could cause a lot of problems. I cannot imagine how we would discover this error so early without the Crane Camera.”


Stijn Van Schaijk BIM Manager - VolkerWessels
Kevin Grover

“Monitoring the change over time, day-to-day on the construction site, is very valuable and this alone justifies why we use this technology.”


Kevin Grover UAS Operations Manager - Stantec
