New Komatsu smart dashboard helps construction teams visualize job site progress
Komatsu's new Smart Construction Dashboard helps construction operations teams visualize the status of their jobsites by leveraging the power of IoT to help customers orchestrate construction planning, better handle management and scheduling, streamline costs, and optimize processes remotely—in near real time.
Smart Construction Dashboard is designed to be used daily and combines data from multiple sources into one comprehensive picture. Smart Construction Dashboard provides contractors with 3D graphic visualization of all design, drone and machine data to measure cut/fills, quantities and productivity. Site progress can be viewed with timeline functions (including playback) in terms of whole-site visuals, cross-sections and individual measurements.
"What is really cool is that the flight surface data from our drone is loaded to the Smart Construction Dashboard and we can very quickly see changes—the actual progress," said Andie Rodenkirch, project manager for Hunzinger Construction Company. "Technologies that let operators do the job one time and do it correctly increase efficiency, so it's been a great tool for us."
Smart Construction Dashboard is part of Komatsu's new Smart Construction Solutions, an umbrella of smart applications created to help construction customers optimize their business remotely, and in near real time.
