Smart Construction Pairs Drones With Heavy Equipment

Komatsu, a manufacturer of heavy construction equipment, and Skycatch, a drone manufacturer, have announced a new service to automate pre-foundation work on construction jobsites.

The new service is dubbed Smart Construction and pairs Skycatch drones with Komatsu machines equipped with intelligent Machine Control technology. The service was originally announced in January of this year but a new video has been released that better explains how it works.

In a nutshell, Smart Construction performs an initial terrain survey and compiles it into a 3D model. It then sends the data to the properly-equipped machines to carry out site preparation tasks.

Wendell was a Land Surveyor for 26 years, then moved on to building websites for his second career. But he never lost sight of the surveying community and the other disciplines related to surveying. He's purposely stayed involved in the surveying industry because he has always been — and will continue to be — a Land Surveyor at heart.
