Using smartglasses to collect floating waste from river
Operating a crane from anywhere to remotely collect floating waste
To tackle the river pollution challenge in Belgium, DEME installed a plastic collector platform in the middle of the Scheldt to collect floating waste from the water. As the platform is not accessible without using a boat, the crane on this platform needed to be operated from the shore. We created an augmented reality solution combined with a 3D camera that streams a stereoscopic 3D video in real-time. This allows the crane operator to visualize the crane and the river as if he was there on the platform.
