SK Telecom, Hyundai, and Trimble to use 5G in construction
SK Telecom, Hyundai Construction Equipment, and Trimble will collaborate to use 5G for the development of solutions to remote construction equipment monitoring, real-time safety management, and AI-based construction operations.
SK Telecom, Hyundai Construction Equipment, and Trimble will collaborate to use 5G for managing construction equipment, the companies announced.
The three will develop solutions for remote construction equipment monitoring, real-time safety management, and AI-based construction operations, they said.
The hope is to create construction equipment that will operate longer and also reduce overall construction time in order to increase efficiency and save costs.
Hyundai Construction Equipment makes excavators and forklifts while US-based Trimble provides navigation and modeling services for construction firms.
In the short-term, the three will make intelligent construction equipment and use various sensors for safety.
The companies will then use 5G to detect defects in construction equipment and create a management solution that will allow construction to proceed unimpeded.
They will also apply AI into planning, measuring, pricing, and building to increase operation efficiencies during construction. Trimble will also develop a technology that uses drones to measure geography and turn that information into digital data.
