The vision for Buildvation is to solve safety and efficiency problems through the innovative application of new technologies in the construction and mining industries.
Patented Hook Sensor
Rigger-Assist is a Buildvation patented sensor device which has been custom built in-house for lifting operations.
Rigger-Assist is attached to the hook block on luffing type cranes, once calibrated it will give readable live data to the rigger on the position of the hook; specifically on how far deviated from vertical.
Riggers can then view this information via Data-Head or Smart-Glasses in live-time, giving the ability to correct the “plumb” or vertical deviation from the load centroid to the boom tip before the full weight of the load is taken.
Patented Holographic Heads-Up Display
Data-Head is a patented holographic heads-up display device which has been field tested in Australian conditions for the past 3 years.
Compact, robust design has allowed for a lightweight display device which can be customised for your application.
Designed originally for the crane industry to provide lift sensitive data to the rigger in real-time (via Rigger-Assist / RTK solutions).
Many other industries have trialled Data-Head including:
Buildvation is always looking to engage with industry leading companies and form strong partnerships which solve industry specific problems.
RTK Sensor device has been implemented by Buildvation to assist Data-Head with accuracy on larger cranes.
Field research concluded that cranes utilising a boom 50m or greater in length, were not getting the accuracy required with the Rigger-Assist angle sensor.
RTK uses precision GPS technology with sensors attached to both the boom-tip and the hook-block to measure horizontal displacement.
Innovative, industrial grade safety Smart-Glasses.
Buildvations’ Smart-Glasses are the most technologically advanced product Buildvation offers, designed specifically for industrial use in rugged, Australian outdoor conditions.
Incorporates many industry leading components; 640 x 380 pixel LCD, 1080p camera. Custom design including; pcb, touch-pad scroll, interchangeable lenses for day/nightshift, interchangeable batteries and lightweight polycarbonate design.
Designed originally for the crane industry to provide lift sensitive data to the rigger in real-time via Rigger-Assist / RTK.
Superior to Data-Head as real-time video calls and phone sharing can be achieved, including internet phone network and cloud connection.
Can be used as a training tool, giving employers ability to communicate with trainees and personnel in the field from headquarters.
Ability to take photo evidence of job completion from the field and upload into cloud.
Many other industries are suited for Buildvations’ Smart-Glasses including:
