SkyEye / The concept of UAV-aided excavator


the (SkeEye) excavator is a wholly new small mechanical engineering equipment, designed for the relocation of downtown villages. The machine is equipped with an unmanned aerial vehicle, which is used to both expand the view of the driver and monitor the people around the site, to prevent construction accidents from occurring. With the scanning system coordinated by the UAV, the driver may get clear feedbacks about the conditions of the underground pipelines, so as to make necessary adjustments.
