Basketball , Drones & Construction Industry Join Forces
” Today, the Sacramento Kings announced that a visual data analytics tool utilizing drones capturing high-resolution video and photos, piloted at the Golden 1 Center construction site, earned an award for innovation from the Turner Construction Company. This is the fourth year that Turner has highlighted outstanding innovations and achievements.
A team from University of Illinois, funded by a nearly $1 million National Science Foundation Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) grant, developed a predictive visual data analytics tools to automate and streamline today’s time-consuming practices for construction progress monitoring. Turner implemented the technology as a pilot program during the construction of Golden 1 Center.
The pilot project goal was to use the resulting color-coded 3D visual production models from University of Illinois’ technology to easily and quickly inform project stakeholders about at-risk locations on a project site, allowing them to prioritize problems based on their construction plan, and take corrective actions to improve the reliability of short-term project plans and develop more productive workflows for construction.”
