Autonomous cranes based on computer vision and AI to increase productivity and safety on construction sites

Project description

Smart lift for construction site productivity and safety

Cranes are a staple in any construction site – from mobile cranes and truck-mounted cranes to crawler cranes and hammerhead cranes. Whatever the type, cranes are the main bottleneck at a construction site and the largest source of fatal accidents. The EU-funded AUTOSITE100 project is using AI to develop an autonomous crane system that will improve efficiency (increase productivity by 30 %) and boost safety. This new patented technology combines computer vision, AI (deep learning), machine learning techniques and aerospace algorithms with off-the-shelf hardware. The overall aim is to transform current cranes into high-efficiency autonomous cranes, providing decision-making tools for the management team.
