Zoomlion's Pilot 5G Tower Crane Remote Intelligent Control System Completes Its First Hoisting Task Globally
Zoomlion Heavy Industry Science & Technology Co., Ltd. ("Zoomlion"; 1157.HK) successfully demonstrated its 5G tower crane remote control system (the "System") on June 25 in Zhengzhou, China, and completed its first ever hoisting on the construction of Zhengzhou Jiangshan School.

Installed remotely and intelligently, the System was developed based on Zoomlion's unmanned tower crane project with the support of the advanced 5G technology of Henan Telecom. The System enables remote intelligent control, which replaces previous operations at high-altitudes or ground level. It has filled the gap in remote intelligent hoisting of tower cranes, promoted tower crane restoration, modified the construction method, improved the operator's working environment and reduced labor intensity to guarantee personal safety.

The System consists of four cutting-edge systems:

All-around video surveillance system: it realizes all-around and multi-angle observation of the crane's movement and surrounding area (including blind spots), which improves operation convenience and ensures construction safety;
Visualized intelligent tracking system of the tower crane hook: composed of infrared cameras and digital sensing equipment, this system improves hoisting accuracy and effectively reduces hidden safety hazards during the hoisting process;
Digital tower crane status monitoring system: the different sensors can monitor and display all parameters including boom height, wind speed, temperature and humidity and can predict motion trail to avoid danger and protect the operator's safety;
Anti-collision and intelligent dispatch system: it utilizes the low latency and stability of the 5G network, adopts binocular cameras and combines AI and computer vision technologies to achieve obstacle detection within 10 meters of the hook.
Driven by Zoomlion's "Product 4.0A" strategy, the company has successfully applied 5G technology to tower cranes, cranes, pump trucks and excavators, and the intelligent upgrades of the company's production lines and intelligent factories.

In the future Zoomlion will ceaselessly work with top 5G companies to accelerate its digital transformation and upgrading in a bid to build world-class smart factories and further promote intelligent upgrades of its products.

The IT team is now able to offer innovative solutions to other areas of the company, such as end-user machine deployment, thanks to a more agile infrastructure. Instead of always putting out fires, the team is able to proactively deliver value to the company. Before Nutanix, Treatt was also lacking a disaster recovery (DR) solution despite being based in central Florida, a region prone to inclement weather and hurricanes. To address this issue, Treatt decided to implement Nutanix Xi Leap, its cloud-based Disaster Recovery solution. Nutanix enabled Treatt to set up three redundant DR systems in different locations within their facility. The IT team is now able to offer innovative solutions to other areas of the company, such as end-user machine deployment, thanks to a more agile infrastructure. Instead of always putting out fires, the team is able to proactively deliver value to the company. However, if the entire facility were to go down, Xi Leap will seamlessly take over to ensure business continuity until primary systems are restored. “Whether the failover was planned or unplanned, the end users would not notice much change. That is, in effect, the power and necessity of a strong business continuity solution,” said John Bertero, VP, USA Commercial Sales. “With Xi Leap, customers can feel at ease knowing they can continue to operate through a variety of disasters and communicate this safety to its clients, giving them peace of mind as well.” Treatt’s UK division is currently migrating to Nutanix to provide the IT team with more memory and storage capacity for their heavier workloads and is also looking to bring Nutanix to their operations in China.
