Team MiCrane (2018-19)

Human errors cause most of the tower crane accidents in constructions sites, but with automatisation, those errors can be reduced and the operations in sites made safer, more reliable and efficient. However, developing requires a lot of testing, which is not safe, efficient or affordable to do on sites.

The team’s main task is to build a scale model of a construction site for testing purposes for our partner company Trenox. The scale model must include tower crane models, which perform the same way as real tower cranes.

Secondary, the scale model could also be used to present the automation system performance for Trenox customers.

Considering that the scale model is for testing the automation systems, the mechanical properties of the cranes or the site are not in the focus of the project.
