Industry has evolved and moved from one generation to next with improvements in processes, practices, capabilities and value. Industry 4.0, the fourth industrial revolution, embraces automation, data exchange and manufacturing technologies. Digital Construction 4.0 shows you your possibilities to be part of this revolution – together with Topcon Positioning Systems, Inc. A significant role in the 4.0 construction industry will be played by drones and unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) like the Topcon Falcon 8, powered by Ascending Technologies.
“The largest use case for commercial drones in the immediate future will be in construction”, according to a March 2016 report from Goldman Sachs, “primarily, in surveying and mapping construction sites.”
Accordingly drone / UAS / UAV surveying and mapping at construction sites – from construction planning based on aerial data to maintenance and monitoring of civil or industrial infrastructure – is one of the future key solutions for the whole industry. Topcon provides service to enable intelligence inside of the construction industry by making all the machines and workflows much more efficient.
