Smart Crane Anti-Collision System

NOCOL Smart Crane Anti-Collision is a monitoring system using PANORAMA LIDAR to prevent collisions with cranes, structures, and objects in industrial sites such as shipbuilding and construction. Field supervisors can quickly recognize their surroundings with portable displays saving time and cost. NOCOL consists of easy-to-install 3D measurement PANORAMA LIDAR, software-driven devices, and monitors. If you want to control it remotely, you can use the monitor to operate more safely.


Smart Crane Anti-Collision System NOCOL


NOCOL, which measures the distance using a laser, can be easily installed on the crane to secure high-resolution 3D information about the crane and its surroundings. NOCOL uses 3D information to calculate the distance from dangerous objects around the crane in real time and warns the crane driver of the dangerous situation. Field supervisors can check the work environment in 3D information, and always store work status in real time with a 3D black box function. It is the world's first 3D LIDAR Crane Anti-Collision System that can check the distance between colliding objects in cm resolution and is easy to install/uninstall. 

What is the LIDAR sensor?


Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR), also known as LIDAR (Laser Detection and Ranging), Time of Flight (ToF), laser scanners, and laser radars, is a sensing method that detects objects and maps distances. After the target is illuminated with a laser optical pulse, the distance is measured using the moving time of the reflected signal, and the optical-pulse width can vary from nanoseconds to microseconds. Recently, it is a state-of-the-art sensor that is actively used for autonomous driving and mapping using drones.


What is Panorama LIDAR used in NOCOL

Panorama LIDAR is a state-of-the-art sensor that complements the narrow vertical viewing angle of a commercialized 3D lidar and can sense a large area with a single 3D LIDAR. FM's Pnorama LIDAR The sensor PALA720 is installed on a crane and can obtain 3D distance information such as cranes, surrounding structures, and lifting objects.


Is Crane Anti-Collision System Necessary?


Article 50(2) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act requires the installation of collision prevention devices.

※ Enforcement Rules of the Occupational Safety and Health Act (Article 50 Measures for Persons Who Rent Machines, etc.)

② A person who has borrowed a tower crane shall take the following measures. <New 2018 March 30, 2018>

1. If there is a risk of collision between tower crane equipment or between tower crane and adjacent structures during work using tower crane, take necessary measures to prevent collision, such as installing collision prevention devices.

2. While the tower crane is installed and dismantled, record the entire work process as a video and store it during the rental period.

Expected Effects of NOCOL Crane Anti-Collision System


The 3D data secured by the NOCOL is the core of smart construction and smart shipbuilding sites. The data obtained at the site can be applied not only to prevent risks at the construction site, but also to work process monitoring and efficiency. Now, the establishment of NOCOL will be a necessity for smart companies to prevent major disasters and secure global competitiveness in the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
