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.
