|ERP Software Includes New Technology for Transmission Mast Inspection|
SAP has added Pix4D to its Accelerator Program. The collaboration between SAP and Pix4D is principally aimed at the telecommunications industry -- the new Pix4D technology for the inspection of transmission masts with the help of drones, cloud computing and artificial intelligence (AI) is being implemented in the SAP S/4HANA platform and was integrated into the SAP Asset Management.
Companies using this integrated technology can securely collect data from drones and from the ground in order to automatically create accurate 3D models of transmission masts and telecommunications systems. The digital copies can be examined in a virtual environment using Pix4Dinspect, with machine learning algorithms helping to automatically measure the sizes and orientations of the antennas. In combination with existing company data, this information aids in valuable decision-making for business processes such as calculating profitability or evaluating the system's condition.
