The Future of Construction Site Surveillance Part 3

If you have read sections one and two of this four-part article, you may already be a believer in the possibility of robots legitimately monitoring the work being performed on construction sites. As Nashville construction litigation attorneys, we know that anything is possible in this digital age. If utilizing groundbreaking technology can create more productive workplaces with excellent results then we are all for these innovative techniques being implemented.

There are many benefits to self-navigating rovers and drones that provide workplace surveillance. In this section and the final section, we will outline some of the main reasons why, if functional, this technology should be embraced by the construction industry.

The Problem With Construction Interiors

When drone technology became highly sophisticated, the devices were seamlessly integrated into the construction industry process capturing data for exteriors. Of course, drones were enhanced with new advancements over the years. With that being said, the interiors of construction sites were never as easy to navigate for autonomous devices until this recent technology circumvented many of these problems. In the near future, rovers could be implemented much to the same effect as drones.

Conquering This Problem

Inspecting construction work that is in progress and in an interior can be very difficult for the inspector. Inspectors can make misjudgments or overlook a problem. These mistakes or oversights can lead to both small and catastrophic accidents. They can also lead to a contractor’s need for a Nashville construction litigation attorney.

The precision of a Doxel rover allows construction professionals to confirm that the building process is being performed precisely with all of the components aligned correctly. If the metric data analyzed by the “deep learning” process shows that the progress is off kilter, the contractor can be notified via smartphone of the necessary steps to alleviate this issue. This technology at the contractor’s fingertips is invaluable.

Productive Technology

The deep learning process of this technology doesn’t just stop with the inspection process. An up-to-the-minute metrical analysis allows construction projects to save time instead of going back weeks to fix an unexpected issue. This, of course, results in significant reductions to the budget when certain issues are corrected in a timely fashion. Having an inspection process in real time that evaluates a project, highlights areas that need correction, and keeps an entire scale of a project recorded in measurable data is vital to construction project management. From budgeting to schedule coordination to keeping records on the quality of the project, this technology can find problems before they escalate and keep everybody on the project “in the know” on all of the important data.
