Team Sauron’s Eye (2017-18)

Towering meters above the ground, cranes have a perspective that no other machine or person has.  This all seeing vantage point presents a unique opportunity for improving construction site operations. Team Sauron’s Eye will use the crane as an intelligent base for improving worksite efficiency by tracking materials’ locations and creating a time efficient crane schedule. Additionally, these new products will reduce communication barriers, a concern gleaned through our research.  Our interdisciplinary team of engineers, designers, and entrepreneurs looks forward to creating a solution that addresses these concerns, all the while functioning in a rapidly changing environment.
