South America Autonomous Cranes Market Dynamic

Despite several economic obstacles, the region’s economy is expected to develop during the forecast period because of positive government measures. Owing to the government policies supporting industrial growth the region has the highest urbanization rate in the world. With the growth of the industrial sector, the scope for integrating innovative machinery and equipment is also expected to increase. Food and drinks, oil, petroleum, natural gas, mining, and automobile are among the most developed industries in the region with a large number of production facilities. The use of autonomous cranes is anticipated to increase to help the manufacturing process in the industries. The high level of manufacturing automation in this region is expected to fuel the industry forward.


The use of cranes in the shipbuilding industry has increased significantly in recent years because of the increase in sea-borne trade and other naval activities. The automated gantry crane manufacturers on the market are concentrating their efforts on providing a diverse product line which is driving the market growth. The crane market is anticipated to grow during the forecast period because of the various advancement planned to improve the machine’s capabilities.


Autonomous Future: Driverless Cranes


The construction sector despite its adoption of innovation (R&D spending account for less than 1% of revenues) is in desperate need of change to address a rising shortage of competent personnel, a lack of standardization, and drop-in productivity and profitability. There are many reasons for the industry’s inefficiency like poor planning, mismanagement, human error, outdated equipment, and cranes are at the top of the list. It lifts 75% of material and equipment and is needed by a wide variety of users to perform a task in a project of all shapes and sizes. Cranes have an impact on the entire process but the estimated efficiency is only 55-65% with regular bottlenecks and costly delays. The development of next-generation autonomous machines will require a variety of modern technology. The ability of a machine to replicate human intelligence is known as artificial intelligence (AI), the machine involves visual perception, translation, decision making, and speech recognition. Machine learning is a technique that allows the machine to learn from their mistake rather than designed precisely for each task. Computer vision (CV) refers to a machine’s ability to gather information about the surrounding through video cameras, process it, and then understand the images. BIM (Building information modeling) is a time-saving technology for planning and tracking construction projects. All of these and many more are used by IntSite’s autonomous crane. The autonomous cranes will not eliminate the job of the crane operator, it will be in the loop to make sure everything is running smoothly and safely. Cranes operators will have the ability to override the machinery if needed. The ongoing design will heavily rely on their involvement, which will provide vital insights into the needs and issues that arise in the field, and prioritize the features that should be developed.  IntSite is looking for a strong strategic partner in the world’s leading crane manufacturers. The ideal partner allows the company to move forward in many ways. They have the in-depth knowledge needed to validate the market, fund the IntSite team to grow and complete development, and IntSite’s solution that integrates future autonomous crane regulation with the crane core.
