GOAL: Provide accurate volumetric data on multiple aggregate piles.
OUTCOME: With one pass over aggregate piles, we’re able to provide volumetric data with accurate height measurements. Photogrammetry was also utilized, but the height measurements and volumetric data was inaccurate on a few piles. Since there was little to no texture available to receive quantifiable measurements.
BENEFITS OF USING BOE SYSTEMS
Tracking: With the new era of UAV’s and mounted sensors, we can fly over aggregate piles and provide updated volumetric’s. This can help business owners understand where they could be loosing profits throughout the year.
Business Expansion: Companies accurately tracking product can benefit by reporting their inventory, and look to borrow against that product to further their business endeavor.
Knowledge: Tracking product by just weight can sometimes be inefficient. As scales can be setup to either benefit or diminish the bottom line for companies.
