Benefits in a nutshell
SafetyElios was chosen by WACO for its ability to operate in confined spaces without having to put people's safety at risk and because of its versatility and speed of execution.
SpeedIn just 30 minutes, the Elios drone was able to collect all the necessary data for planning the interventions needed to ensure safety in the quarry furnace.
Data qualityThe high-quality images captured by the Elios enabled the client to accurately identify the causes behind the rock detachments and plan subsequent interventions.
AccessThe quarry was 190m tall making it extremely difficult to inspect. The Elios drone performed remote visual and LiDAR inspection, which was ideal for gathering the necessary data.

Results and benefits of using the Elios
The effectiveness of Elios technology and the service provided by WACO S.R.L, made it possible to obtain high-quality images and videos, which reworked in the digital twin model facilitated the understanding of critical details and facilitated the sharing of key information within the company. All of this was done with high speed and precision. The ability to explore the digital model interactively via the Potree platform also provided additional benefits, enabling measurements, profiling and video visualizations.
