Doosan Infracore Demonstrates the Unmanned and Automated Construction Site Solutions

Published: 9/12, 2019

Doosan Infracore recently unveiled “Concept-X,” a comprehensive control solution that can be used to survey worksite topography via 3D drone scanning, establish operational plans based on the topographical data, and operate construction equipment such as excavators and wheel loaders without human intervention. 

In short, Concept-X realizes the construction site of the future by having difficult construction work performed solely by equipment, leaving human personnel free to concentrate on more sophisticated analysis and management tasks.

Although certain individual unmanned technologies have already been introduced in the field of construction machinery, Doosan Infracore’s introduction of unmanned automation technologies to the entire construction site operation process – ranging from surveying to the operations of construction equipment such as excavators and wheel loaders – is a world first.

Concept-X comprises a wide range of cutting-edge Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies such as image recognition, cognitive/control technologies, autonomous driving technologies, 5G remote control, 3D drone surveys, and accurate workload estimation and assignment, and failure-prediction technologies.

The new technologies include a technology designed to create 3D worksite maps with drone-surveyed data; a technology enabling construction equipment such as excavators and wheel loaders to perform optimized unmanned operations according to any site situation; and a technology that makes real-time monitoring of work progress possible through the X-Center’s comprehensive control solution.

Doosan Infracore asserts that the solution will boost productivity and economic feasibility significantly by reducing the time and costs required for construction equipment operations, while continuing to make worksites safer. Doosan Infracore plans to commercialize Concept-X by 2025.

Pending its commercialization, Doosan Infracore will introduce each of the abovementioned technologies – including drone surveying, cutting-edge data analysis, and unmanned construction equipment operations and control - individually as soon as they have been fully verified.

In addition to its independent technology development, Doosan Infracore has pursued various forms of open innovation including collaboration with other companies and schools, as well as investment in startups. The company has engaged in industry-academic cooperation with Seoul National University, Yonsei University, and Hanyang University in order to develop new technologies related to AI-based construction equipment operations, drone 3D surveying, and operational data analysis.

In 2018, Doosan Infracore, in partnership with LG U+, introduced 5G-based remote control technology for the first time in the world.
