Visual Intelligence, a unified drone and software automation platform, has announced to partner with Bentley Systems Incorporated, the infrastructure engineering software company, to introduce OpenTower® iQ a purpose-built telecom tower solution to help telecommunication owners and operators realize the true value of a digital-twin that automates downstream workflow, including inspection and engineering analysis.
Visual Intelligence uses patented dual-sensor drone technology and proprietary enterprise software, to generate billions of data points and map exponentially more measurable tower surface area than any alternative aerial or ground-based method.
Visual Intelligence utilizes OpenTower iQ technology to translate new fidelity data into engineering-grade as-built 3D models.
Apurba Tribedi, Senior Director of Bentley Tower Products said, “The true value of a Digital Twin can be vastly extended with engineering-grade data accuracy. By capturing high-resolution data with their patented sensors, Visual Intelligence extends capabilities to extract engineering class insights and unlocks new use cases.”
Ted Miller, Founder of Visual Intelligence and former Chairman, CEO of Crown Castle International said, “OpenTower iQ has the potential to dramatically accelerate the adoption of drones in tower operations, and the utilization of digital twins to augment and replace traditional workflows. Millimeter-accurate measurements eliminate most tower climbs. Precision digital twins simulate tower loading and generate engineering drawings. AI-based inventory recognition and mount capacities accelerate purchase decisions. Millimeter data is key to unlocking digital twins, and OpenTower iQ is the first and only analytics solution capable of translating this new fidelity of data into meaningful intelligence and automation.”
