Developed in partnership with DJI, the world’s leading manufacturer of UAVs, Leica’s new UAV technology called Leica Aibot is now here to make digitizing visual construction data simpler and more efficient for contractors. Leica Aibot can identify gaps early with a level of accuracy previously not available with the construction industry. High definition imagery and 3D mapping allow viewing of site mapping or progress documentation. This enables users to save time and money at all stages of the project.
Throughout a project lifecycle of planning, designing and construction, Aibot provides easier access to critical information to perform volume calculations and monitor site progress. From creating digital terrain models to stripping and bulk earthworks and trenching to finally fine grading, paving and compaction, the solution supports easier actuals comparisons providing a more transparent view of site progression monitoring and volume calculations with safer operations to keep projects on schedule.
Leica’s system allows users to process and analyze millions of data points gathered from above and visualize the data to provide actionable information.
The UAV data can be combined with existing survey technologies, such as TPS, GPS and laser scanning. By meshing with existing survey technologies, such as total stations, GNSS and laser scanning, users get a more complete set of information that is easier to interpret and apply to the contractor’s project.
