Bentley, Leica and PlexEarth are among the most interesting novelties starting the month of February of 2019. Additionally, we show that we have compiled 21 interesting events that are on the way, in which the entire community of geoengineering professionals can participate. Some of the topics addressed in these events are: BIM, GIS, PDI, Geostatistics, design, CAD and also IoT.
Ask the Expert - MicroStation CONNECT Edition
This has been launched by Bentley, as a valuable alternative for users who often need advice beyond the technical support offered by manuals or webinars of the applications. This need I remember having raised in one of the events in London, back when in the cadastral system of a Central American country we wanted to migrate from Geographics to BentleyMap a set of developed applications, plus 4500 files in dgn with historical versioning that had to pass to Oracle Spatial .
In short, they are free sessions called "Ask the Expert", Tuesdays at 12 at noon, Eastern time in the United States and 1 PM at London time.
Here you can join, to be aware of the issues that are coming.
As an example, these are the topics that will be taken in the following weeks:
- 12-Feb parameter configuration WorkSpaces and WorkSets in CONNECT Edition applications
- 19-Feb Migration applications developed with VBA, BMR and MDL
- 26-Feb Cloud services for CONNECT Edition applications
Leica Geosystems + SVAB
The giant Leica Geosystems, has been characterized for many years, as one of the pillars in the creation, management and monitoring of technologies that to date are used, from geospatial, security, defense, engineering to construction. The February 7, has announced that its partnership with SVAB, a company dedicated to the development of products for excavators -ranging from the control, to the sensors and controls-; It paid off, both have presented one of the solutions for the control of machinery, focused on the productivity of the iXE3 and the iGW3. This solution is nothing more than a system based on the recognition of Quantum SVAB tools.
If we remember, the Leica icon iXE3 is a system that allows the control of the machinery in 2D and 3D with high precision, through a control panel can create terrain models, giving flexibility in the field; On the other hand, the iGW3, is a real - time positioner of the shovel - bucket of the excavator, to be able to make immediate modifications and avoid time expenses by verifying the exact leveling of these.
The system presented by Leica + SVAB, is the Tool Recognition, it is totally wireless - it is connected through Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), and it has the possibility of detecting which is the tool of the machinery with which the processes of excavation, and also identifies which systems or tools are integrated into the machine.
This innovative system is integrated with the previously developed technologies, the iXE3 and the iGW3, which translates into a greater and effective handling of the industrial machine
Some operators change cubes several times a day; With the tool recognition configuration, the risk of human error is eliminated. The integration with the control solution of the machine means that the operator only needs to concentrate on a panel
One of the advantages of this system is the facilitation of processes for machine operators, eliminating the need to change the settings manually. It also prevents any operator (novice or expert) using the bucket-spade incorrectly, creating waste of time and repetitions of excavation since the system is communicative-send alerts if the operator selects a tool without a tool recognition module - and completely automated. Another of its advantages is that it recognizes tools such as standard inclination buckets and removable tilting rotators.
The tool recognition system establishes a new standard that takes advantage of the information in which the work tool of the machine is connected.
We expect, from this side, the quality of this product, as they have achieved throughout Leica's career, without neglecting their co-creator SVAB, who have been leaders in offering products in the area hydraulics. Sooner rather than later we will see the application of this system and the benefits that it brings.
Plexscape + Bird i
Most know Plexscape for being developers of the so-called PlexEarth, one of the fundamental tools for professionals who use CAD systems in the efficient designs of AEC projects (Architecture, engineering and construction). Recently, Plexscape made an alliance with TranSoft, and it never ceases to amaze us a new partnership with Bird.i; a platform for access and observation of images from satellites or airborne, which obtains data from some large imagery areas such as: AIRBUS, Digital Globe, Bluesky, or planet. Bird.i merges access to images with artificial intelligence processes, to obtain high-quality geospatial data for processes and the AEC market.
The need arises for the integration of the aforementioned, as the answer to all those difficulties that occur, when carrying out any activity that involves images with geoengineering processes; as for example: purchase of high resolution images (high cost), errors in design, delays or processing with free images with limitations of use, low accuracy or reliability.
At Plexscape, we are committed to changing the way engineers work on architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) projects by bridging the gap between design and the real world. " He said. Lambros Kaliakatsos, Founder and CEO of Plexscape.
PlexEarth and Bird.i, have created mechanisms for small, medium or large companies, which are managed in the field of construction, oil, gas, mining, or renewable energy, can make use of satellite images within CAD platforms such as AutoCAD . The timely access to geospatial data allows the CAD user to generate up-to-date, well-founded data and spatial-structural monitoring in a quick and easy way.
We firmly believe that our partnership with Bird.i will allow AEC professionals to design with the utmost confidence and take their processes to the next level through instant access to premium content.
How will the process be carried out?
Well, in the first instance Bird.i is working on unlocking the access of high-end images, on the other hand, it is known that PlexEarth, the flagship product of Plexscape, has a broad infrastructure based on the cloud and was popularized as a part of of the tools of Autodesk, this will contribute with the cataloging, distribution and selection of the specific images that the professional requires, so that later it can be used in processes of design and data management, based on AEC.
Here is the list of the aforementioned events, just select the one of your interest and it will take you to the registration page.
