Pix4D CraneCamera solution - a fully autonomous alternative to drones

Webinar for construction monitoring. Learn how to get drone data without drone

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 VolkerWessels have teamed up to present the CraneCamera solution and explain how VolkerWessels used it in a tight downtown project to track project progress, schedule material deliveries and identify build errors to prevent costly rework and potential project delays.

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 VolkerWessels are using the CraneCamera solution on their construction projects to monitor the jobsite progress and identify build errors;
  • How the CraneCamera helped the team avoid a common and potentially costly error.
