Smart construction technology, integrated via Komatsu’s SMARTConstruction, involves the use of GPS, 3D mapping, machine control and related technologies, all working in conjunction with advanced ICT (information communication technology) to streamline and simplify construction tasks.
Aerial mapping uses UAS (drone) technology to gather topographic data efficiently from the air, collecting information at pre-bid, construction and as-built phases. The high-resolution imagery and topography data gathered is useful for volume calculations and stockpile quantities.
We have access to bases and rovers with the latest GPS hardware from our partner provider, providing a versatile tool to stake out, verify, calculate and measure. In addition, we offer radio equipment that integrates Komatsu intelligence machine control with most brands of GPS receivers.
Our smart jobsite setup tools include:
We have 3D models available for all applications, including utility, residential, commercial and road, as well all types of machine control. Our other 3D data technology includes material takeoffs, quantity reports and volume calculations.
Our clients have access to a broad array of support solutions, including:
The SMARTConstruction platform features a variety of operator and field personnel training conducted by Komatsu certified trainers, including base- and rover-specific training as well as sessions for machine operators, foremen and superintendents. It also features jobsite operator consulting, using new technologies to improve operations, as well as enhanced telematics, with detailed machine control usage reported via KOMTRAX.
