Objective

INTSITE is an Israeli company founded in 2017 with the mission of increasing efficiency, profitability and safety in construction. Our objective is to develop Artificial Intelligence based systems for autonomous construction machinery. Over the last 2 years, we have developed AUTOSITE100 -Autonomous Crane System- that converts any crane into an autonomous machine and provides the management team with real-time site insight for improved decision making. Cranes are the main bottleneck of any construction site: despite hoisting 70 % of all materials and equipment, their efficiency is only 55%-65%. In addition, cranes are one of the largest sources of fatal accidents in construction projects (3,480 crane fatal accidents in the EU in 2017 caused by human error). Incorporating AUTOSITE100 into any crane will provide improved efficiency (30% productivity increase, 24/7 operation), increased safety (real-time detection of every fixed and moving object in the site) and smarter overall site management (real-time map updated and crane activity dashboard).
AUTOSITE100 is a patented technology that combines Computer Vision, Artificial Intelligence (Deep Learning), Machine Learning techniques and aerospace algorithms with off-the-shelf hardware.
Existing solutions in the market are far behind AUTOSITE100 and only work on improving either safety or efficiency, but none of them offers both in a single product, as we do. AUTOSITE100 goes beyond current solutions by using machine vision technology (Artificial Intelligence and Computer Vision). It transforms current cranes into high-efficiency autonomous cranes, providing decision-making tools for the management team and avoiding collisions.
