The technology can be retrofitted to existing cranes, or integrated by the OEM with new cranes. Optilift provides sensors and software technology that allows safe remote-controlled crane- and lifting operations, which can be further extended to autonomous lifting and logistics handling.

By remote controlling crane- and lifting operations, it is possible to allow one crane operator to man multiple cranes at different sites. This means reduced travel costs, increased safety, and efficiency. In times where it may be difficult to source qualified personnel, or travel restrictions are enforced, crane operations may still take place without delays.
