Haul Router provides the best mathematically objective hauls for each given drone scan. Any employee can use the tool to design a haul road and export the results to feed into grading equipment. Precise calculations are possible thanks to regular drone flyovers and our innovative algorithms to calculate the fastest and cheapest grading strategy.
While developing the tool, we conducted multiple in-field interviews and grading site observations to understand how haul roads were designed, and their impact. Independent Construction, the owner of one of the largest dirt moving fleets in the United States, helped us by providing feedback on prototypes and co-executing field tests. For example, in order to align the characteristics of various scraper models to their real-world performance, we measured their productivity in the field and adjusted the algorithms.
