The Syracuse system is comprises of several main components:
Motion control sensors - a series of motion control sensors installed on the crane that monitor the actual position of the crane and the load
Load camera - the load geometry is measured using a camera, which is also used to monitor the load sway
Load weight - the weight of the load is calculated using a cable tension unit
LIDAR system - a LIDAR is used to repetitively scan the environment in which the crane operates, generating an accurate 3D model for the system to maneuver the load without colliding with obstacles
Signaler indicator - the target is marked on the 3D model or by a manual indicator operated by the "Signaler"
Operator control unit - a unit that shows the operator the planed route, the current position of the crane & the load, and allows emergency stopping and remote operation, if necessary
