Smart Construction to unveil Edge 2 at Intermat

Earthmoving digital solutions firm, Smart Construction, will unveil its latest product to champion digitalisation in the construction industry at Intermat 2024: Edge 2.

The new generation Edge serves as both a GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) base station for PPK or RTK drone surveying and a drone data processing unit, marking an advancement in simplifying drone surveying processes and point cloud data processing.

The company claims that it eliminates the need for specialised expertise, making it more user-friendly for individuals across various technical backgrounds and will therefore help to overcome barriers to broader drone surveying adoption. Edge 2 is also said to significantly enhanche data processing speed and accuracy.

The Edge 2 features advanced AI capabilities for object removal, further enhancing the accessibility and efficiency of data processing for all users.

“This pioneering software will empower everyone on- and off- site, from site managers to surveyors and even marketing teams to speed up data processing from drone surveys to create a fully accurate digital twin, featuring 3D terrain maps that will save time spent on site when optimised with the Smart Construction Dashboard solution. Following on from the success of Edge, Edge 2 brings new benefits to enterprises looking to make the most of drone data at the site,” said Richard Clement, Deputy General Manager at Smart Construction. 

Smart Construction can be found at the Komatsu Booth in Hall 5B at Intermat in the Digitalisation Pavilion. Alongside the launch of Edge 2, demonstrations of fully electric Komatsu machines will take place on rotation throughout the day. This will include the Komatsu PC210LCE fitted out with Smart Construction’s 3D Machine Guidance system, allowing visitors to see how digital solutions impact the site environment.
