New Technologies for the Prevention of Excavation Damages
Using Reality Capture and Augmented Reality
Inaccurate and even lack of documentation is the main cause of excavation damage in Denmark. A pipe excavation is most often an expensive and time-consuming affair, and therefore both pipe owners and excavators strive to avoid it as much as possible.
The new initiatives with LER 2.0 are a step towards creating coherent data to provide a better overview and thus fewer excavation damage, but the use of new technologies can prevent excavation damage even more.
