MOU to develop UAV Technology for Built Environment

On 9 April, Surbana Jurong and AeroLion Technologies signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to further develop unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) technologies for the built and natural environment at the Unmanned Systems Asia 2019.

UAVs are one of several technologies transforming the engineering and construction industry. Its use not only boosts productivity, reduces overall project time and costs, provide more accurate data readings in shorter time and improve worker safety.

Under the MOU, the partners will jointly develop UAV solutions for various project applications, including land reclamation, workplace safety, site progression and fault detection in enclosed areas such as buildings and tunnels. Surbana Jurong aims to integrate these UAV solutions into its current processes to further increase its productivity.

The partnership brings together Surbana Jurong’s expertise and experience in planning, design and engineering in the global urban and infrastructure sectors, with AeroLion Technologies’ expertise in UAV technologies that are focused on the building and construction sector. — Construction+ Online
