Trendspek: Transforming How Physical Assets are Managed through Automation and Drone Technology
by Sarah Chow
Trendspek allows asset managers to digest ultra high resolution digital twins in their web browser. This allows inspections to be conducted remotely, boosting productivity and profitability for anyone responsible for the management or maintenance of physical assets. They create these high resolution datasets using refined capture techniques and aerial imagery acquired with drones.
Trendspek adopted Cesium to enable support of the 3D Tile specification. They have used Cesium to develop a range of incredibly powerful tools including measurements, annotations, and timeline viewers to compare tilesets. Users are able to extract an original full resolution image of any point in a tileset with a simple right click.
Trendspek builds a culture of collaboration using chat and messaging functionality. End users can comment, tag and respond to communications made about specific assets and even specific annotations. They aim to enhance predictive maintenance by closely monitoring trends and have built tools using Cesium that allow users to view models side by side and observe critical differences. Trendspek refines users’ understanding of an ever changing asset.
