EarthCam Expands Autodesk Construction Cloud and 3D BIM Integrations
New automated live video overlays for digital twins, AI alerts for Autodesk Build
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New York, November 13, 2023 -- EarthCam, the leader in live camera technology, content and services, released important upgrades to its Autodesk Construction Cloud® integration today at Autodesk® University. EarthCam’s live jobsite cameras can now automatically deliver detailed AI-powered reporting with accompanying live imagery direct to Autodesk Build®, the project management and field execution solution.
EarthCam is the first camera company to be recognized as a Construction Cloud Premium Partner. As part of its seventh generation integration, EarthCam 3D now automatically aligns and merges live-camera streams with digital twins allowing users to pan, tilt and zoom to reveal architectural details while immediately seeing the corresponding model alignment. Navigable Revit® or Navisworks® models are enhanced with high-resolution imagery, providing intelligent perspectives of jobsites and clear visual evidence of progress for VDC teams.
“The EarthCam environment allowed seamless dialogue between multiple project stakeholders and brought innovation to us and, most importantly, our client,” said Stephen Brooke, Digital Delivery Manager for Burns & McDonnell, who uses EarthCam 3D along with EarthCam’s Autodesk Partner Card.
For EarthCam’s Autodesk Construction Cloud integration, users will now be able to leverage new EarthCam AI analytics - automating the delivery of visual data to reports in Autodesk Docs and the recently announced Autodesk Forms. Utilizing EarthCam AI, users can easily configure intelligent alerts based on preset combinations of weather conditions and detected objects such as a concrete truck observed together with rain or freezing conditions. New alerts can be set up for ladders, scissor-lifts, workers at height, and any object traveling over 30mph.
“We use Autodesk - that's our platform,” said Phil Centineo Jr., Project Executive at Torcon, Inc. “We like to use pictures to be able to share with the project team and to be able to identify where we have issues and how we can potentially solve them. So that's proven to be very effective.”
Daily summary reports of EarthCam AI object analytics are now shared with Autodesk Docs and Forms. Reports include useful data-points for context, such as jobsite activity heat maps, recent equipment arrivals and the times when activity started and finished.
EarthCam offers a full line of security cameras and perimeter detection systems with up to one year of continuous video recording. Video clips of events can be trimmed and shared to Autodesk Build to maintain a record of security incidents.
EarthCam’s Control Center has long been the software of choice among industry leaders for smart project documentation, promotion, safety and security. EarthCam provides camera rentals, professional installation and reality capture services to make construction project management more efficient with powerful visual data.
Burns & McDonnell, EarthCam and Autodesk will host “Building What You Need to Go to the Moon" at the Design & Make Stage at Autodesk University on Tuesday, November 14th at 1:00 PM. They will share how the entire ground-up process for deep-space exploration company Intuitive Machines’ new headquarters was visualized using EarthCam 3D and Autodesk Construction Cloud.
