MapXact

An intelligent solution to prevent excavation damage

Automatically interpret ground radar images.

For decades ground radar has been the great promise for soil mapping, to prevent excavation damage to cables and pipes. Interpreting the radar images, however, is such a painstaking job that VolkerWessels subsidiary MapXact almost stopped using ground radar altogether, until they started working with artificial intelligence.

“The MapXact radar cart in combination with the BrainMatter platform are now automatically interpreting images within seconds, rather than days. Our employees can now focus their time and energy on other tasks and further optimization."

Gerben Roseboom, Managing Director, MapXact

10,000 images

Collecting GPR

Tens of thousands of coarse-grained radar images that must be interpreted to distinguish the cables and pipes from the disturbances caused by stones, tree roots and other disturbances.
