The wait is finally over! We’re excited to announce the release of SR Measure 4.0. Here is everything to expect from this game-changing update:
No cones? No Problem. Measure piles using our proprietary EveryPoint Positioning System (EPS).
Simply point you iPhone at the stockpile and start measuring.
In 2012, Stockpile Reports introduced using orange cones as a simple scaling solution because scale based on GPS has never been good enough. However, using any type of ground control point is a pain, whether standard issue cones or special markers.
We have eliminated the need for cones to take measurements with an iPhone because there is something easier than cones: EPS, the EveryPoint Positioning System.
SR Measure leverages 3 special sensors on the iPhone (an accelerometer, a gyroscope, and a magnetometer), plus our proprietary computer vision algorithms to provide state-of-the-art scaling.
Cones are best for exact results. With EPS, measuring with no cones is easier and the results are within an acceptable accuracy range.
We have tested the accuracy of EPS across different devices and a variety of piles and environments because precision with measurements means getting consistent results. A few things to consider when a measurement with EPS is out of expected range:
EPS provides an excellent scaled result, with zero error most of the time, and the average scale error less than 3%. In some remote cases, unique conditions lead to as much as a 5% scale error, which equates to a 16% volume variance. If a measurement value is unexpected or seems out of range, our recommendation is to remeasure or grab some cones to see if the result changes.
Notes: Notes have been removed from the recording screen. Notes can still be added at the end of the recording.
Colorized Recording View: The video recording is now in color so that it is easier to distinguish the pile from the ground.
Automatic Cone Detection: The cone distance button has been removed. Place your cones at 25 or 12.5 feet and the app will automatically confirm the spacing. (10 or 5 meters for those using metric units)
Yellow gears icon: Measurement has uploaded to Stockpile Reports and the official report is processing.
Blurred-out tonnage: Measurement risks have been detected. Report requires either manual verification or remeasure with a drone or use an advanced walking path.
Grayed-out gears with a red exclamation mark: Report failed to process due to measurement errors. Remeasure.
Scaling icons have been added to each measurement report denoting which scaling method was used (cones or EPS).
