A digital platform to view and optimise the use of site equipment.
Plant and heavy-duty equipment like excavators and dump trucks can wait on site redundant until used or, worse, doubled up. So BIM Academy led a team to develop a digital platform that could better plan the use of plant. The result is Aquila which combines 3D models of the site, scheduling plans and real-time data from the project. This information is processed using artificial intelligence to synchronise activity and create a sequence for what equipment is needed when. The result is more streamlined projects and smarter use of plant onsite, so the right equipment is in the right place at the right time.
