HoloBuilder releases SiteAI for automation of construction processes with Artificial Intelligence in 360° imagery data at Autodesk University 2018
HoloBuilder presents an Artificial Intelligence solution that utilizes Computer Vision and Machine Learning to analyze materials, objects and structures in 360° imagery data for automation of construction processes
The Artificial Intelligence behind SiteAI supports construction professionals in day-to-day mission-critical tasks. Automated progress control calculates progress reports without additional effort from capturing weekly 360° progress photos. The progress can be automatically tracked, analyzed and compared to the planned schedule to detect discrepancies as fast as possible. When SiteAI is implemented across projects, it allows processing progress payments faster, knowing the quantity for specific materials, comparing construction progress to schedules and much more.
SiteAI has been developed in close collaboration with Hensel Phelps. Working with construction leaders to adopt innovative construction technologies including reality capture has allowed HoloBuilder to develop the technology with the expert's feedback that's aligned with industry needs. With tens of thousands of 360° images captured, Hensel Phelps has been actively piloting HoloBuilder's Computer Vision algorithm to automatically analyze the work put in place by location.
"The partnership that Hensel Phelps has created with Holobuilder is built around their understanding of our jobsite photo documentation process and how their solution brought immediate improvements and efficiencies to our people. Their capability to do more with data through the development of SiteAI brings additional value and analytics to our construction scheduling and execution. I am excited about the future as the possibility of bringing data silos to an end is truly going to be obtainable. They are letting us document the landmarks of today so that we can construct the reality of tomorrow," said Will Plato, VDC Manager of the Southwest District at Hensel Phelps.
SiteAI is currently in an early-access program stage for selected customers with the company asking more customers to join the waitlist and will be accessible to HoloBuilder users in early 2019.
