GNSS-Based High-Precision Fixed-Point and Lofting of Hoisting Operation for Construction Tower Crane

Abstract—GNSS receiver is one of novel sensors applied to accurate management and control technology for the construction tower crane. Since the low-precision of m-level navigation application based on GNSS pseudo-range observations, it is insatiable to develop requirements of intelligent command for the construction tower crane. To improve the monitoring accuracy for construction tower crane based on GNSS method, a high-precision monitoring approach applied to fixed-point and lofting of hoisting operation by GNSS carrier phase observations is proposed. It is applied to the intelligent command of hoisting operation for the construction tower crane, and a set of GNSS-based fixed-point and lofting of hoisting operation system, named as GNSS_PLS, is designed and developed. The experimental results show that, for 6 minutes (360 epochs) of the monitor station installed on the top of the construction tower crane, the minimum error of North-RMS is 0.009m, the maximum error of North-RMS is 0.015m and the average error of North-RMS is 0.013m; the minimum error of East-RMS is 0.008m, the maximum error of East-RMS is 0.014m and the average value of East-RMS is 0.011m; the minimum error of Up-RMS is 0.021m, the maximum error of Up-RMS is 0.036m and the average value of Up-RMS is 0.030m. The monitoring accuracy of intelligent command of the GNSS_PLS system is obtained to cm-level and the effectiveness and feasibility of the proposed solutions are verified.

Index Terms—Global satellite navigation system, fixed-point, lofting, hoisting operation, intelligent command.
