Title
(EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR REMOTE CONTROL AND AUTOMATION OF A TOWER CRANE
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS DE COMMANDE À DISTANCE ET D'AUTOMATISATION D'UNE GRUE À TOUR
Abstract
(EN) Systems and methods for remote control and automatization of tower cranes are provided herein. One system may include: a first sensing unit comprising a first image sensor configured to generate a first image sensor dataset; a second sensing unit comprising a second image sensor configured to generate a second image sensor dataset; wherein the first sensing unit and the second sensing unit are adapted to be disposed on a jib of a tower crane at a distance with respect to each other such that a field-of-view of the first sensing unit at least partly overlaps with a field-of-view of the second sensing unit; and a control unit comprising a processing module configured to: determine a real-world geographic location data indicative at least of a real-world geographic location of a hook of the tower crane.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés de commande à distance et d'automatisation de grues à tour. Un système peut comprendre : une première unité de détection comprenant un premier capteur d'image conçu pour générer un premier ensemble de données de capteur d'image ; une seconde unité de détection comprenant un second capteur d'image conçu pour générer un second ensemble de données de capteur d'image ; la première unité de détection et la seconde unité de détection étant conçues pour être disposées sur une flèche d'une grue à tour à une certaine distance l'une par rapport à l'autre de telle sorte qu'un champ de vision de la première unité de détection chevauche au moins partiellement un champ de vision de la seconde unité de détection ; et une unité de commande comprenant un module de traitement conçu pour : déterminer des données de géolocalisation du monde réel indiquant au moins une géolocalisation du monde réel d'un crochet de la grue à tour.
