Deep Dive: TraceAir Platform Features

In the last post, we explained why field usage and easy-to-use software is so important in construction. Now, let’s take a deep dive into the key features of the TraceAir platform which our users love.

  • prevents delays during the grading stage, thanks to the most accurate site balance predictions based on soil behavior tracking;
  • provides easy-to-use tools to check quantities right in the field for even the least tech-savvy users;
  • gives a unique combination of recent data and accessible tools to plan the best possible sequencing at your fingertips;
  • makes all the relevant data instantly available to resolve disputes right at meetings;
  • offers insights powered by machine learning to help you seamlessly keep your job site up to safety and environmental requirements.

Impact of accurate drone flyovers

Several years ago, at the beginning of our journey, we were first in the drone industry who aimed to build the most topographically accurate construction site models, which were crucial for the related analytical tools to work properly. At that same time, many grading contractors and civil and geotechnical firms were struggling to develop flyover services in-house to embrace the advantages provided by innovative drone technology. Some of them succeeded, for example with the help of Pix4D processing solutions, among others.

Measurements and planning

With the TraceAir platform, you can instantly measure elevations, lengths, areas, and quantities. Complex calculations previously performed only by engineers in the back office can now be done in seconds right on the construction site.

Analyze the whole job site:

  1. Compare surfaces. Compare your recent flyover:
  • to the original ground to visualize the total amount of work completed since the beginning of the job;
  • to the previous flyover to visualize the work completed between the flyovers.

Machine learning and customization

The TraceAir platform provides multiple custom services based on leveraging the unique data we collect, machine learning, and recent proprietary technological innovations developed by TraceAir. Those include:

  • automatic pavement tracking to get your pavement % complete with every new flyover.
  • the best available soil behavior (bulk/shrink) tracking and prediction to balance your job or quantify the upcoming dirt export/import. Gets more accurate with every newly added job site.
  • automatic estimation and detection of material quantities: stockpiled materials, SWPPP-related materials (hydro-mulch, stabilizing fabric and fiber rolls, etc.).

TraceAir is construction management software powered by drone data and AI that provides the best planning and sequencing decisions for builders.
