New Kespry construction innovations further drive project profitability by enhancing drone flight and on-demand data accuracy
Kespry, the drone-based aerial intelligence solution provider, is highlighting its new construction industry-focused innovations at the World of Concrete industry trade show in Las Vegas, January 22-26. The international event is the only large-scale show dedicated to the commercial concrete and masonry construction industries. As part of its global strategic alliance with John Deere, Kespry will be featured at John Deere's World of Concrete booth located at C545.
It has been a relatively short few years since unmanned aerial vehicles – better known as drones – have moved out of the domain of the military and government, and down to the everyday consumer. In that time, one of the most enthusiastic industries in the adoption of this technology has been construction, which came to an early realization that aerial surveys of everything from buildings to gravel stockpiles could improve the way in which pit operators and contractors managed their businesses.
World of Asphalt will be held in Houston, Texas, from March 6 to 8 and features educational programming and exhibits focusing on the latest technology and innovations for the asphalt industry. The Agg1 Aggregates Academy & Expo, co-located with World of Asphalt, offers educational sessions and exhibits on the latest developments for the aggregates industry. The following are highlights of products that attendees can expect to see at the shows.
Meeting schedules, staying on budget, and following design plans are the core principles for companies performing earthwork operations. Having a balance between these three responsibilities is a difficult task and requires the right combination of technologies to be successful. An enterprise aerial intelligence platform with purpose built earthwork analysis tools is giving construction and engineering companies the power to control the success of a project.
John Deere and Kespry enter strategic alliance to simplify drone integration on construction jobsites
John Deere and Kespry today announced an exclusive global strategic alliance through which John Deere Construction & Forestry dealers will provide the Kespry Aerial Intelligence System to their customers on jobsites around the world. Starting in North America, the alliance enables John Deere customers to use Kespry’s fully integrated industrial drone platform to capture topographic data in minutes with survey-grade accuracy.
Kespry, the leading aerial intelligence platform provider, has announced that it has enhanced the Kespry Drone 2 with higher performance features that deliver significantly greater accuracy and reliability. These enhancements make Kespry Drone 2 even more ideal for a wide range of industrial applications, including those requiring survey-grade precision, such as in mining and the architecture, engineering and construction (A/E/C) markets. The new Drone 2 now achieves four to six times the accuracy of the previous Kespry Drone System.
While the commercial use of drones, or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), has been regulated in Canada since 2007, this burgeoning technology is just beginning to be adopted by the asphalt/aggregate industry. From managing stockpiles more effectively and reducing second party verification costs, to monitoring construction projects and enhancing visual documentation for communications and planning, drones offer enormous benefits in time and cost savings. As the technology becomes more sophisticated and applications expand, companies can expect new and exciting uses for drones to make their operations more efficient for an improved bottom line.
Kespry Drone 2.0 ideal for mine planning, operations, inspection and safety now flies over 30 minutes per flight
Kespry, which designs automated drone systems for commercial use, has announced the new Kespry Drone 2.0. The new lighter-weight drone flies 2X as long, covers 2X the ground area, and has 2X the wind resilience, due to the new airframe, battery and flight system improvements.
