Client
Overview

Construction is still one of the most dangerous jobs in the world, with job sites consisting of complex networks of people, equipment, and activities that are dangerous and ever changing. Our client is primarily focused on their businesses in the Middle East and they have a workforce of around 1500 people working in different locations. Their primary goal is to centrally manage the activities of all workers and equipment.

Problem
Statement

The development of Real-Time Location Sensing (RTLS) technology has created a fascinating data acquisition tool for the construction industry. This has allowed construction managers to monitor site productivity, manage materials/assets, supervise labor, and safety through the accurate collection and analysis of location based data. The following are the major areas we have covered in this project.

  • Need for a system to monitor the movement of equipment

  • Geo-fencing sensitive areas and creating alerts in unauthorized access

  • An efficient system to monitor the activities of workers in all sites

  • Analyzing the generated insights to make informed decisions to enhance their operational efficiency which leads to cost savings

Our
Solution

We have different types of Smart sensors and Smart tags which will seamlessly integrate with our powerful cloud servers for real-time management capabilities, alerting, and monitoring.

  • Smart sensors (CloudSense) were installed at selected points in the various sites.

  • Beacon cards were distributed to staff in the construction site. Beacon tags were attached to machines and vehicles coming in and going out of the construction site.

  • The intuitive alert system of assistplus generated alerts to notify construction managers about the movement of employees and vehicles.

  • Collision avoidance in vehicles and moving equipment.

Key benefits observed after  implementing our solution:

  • Assurance that goods and construction materials in the warehouse never go out of stock

  • Effective surveillance of goods moving in/out of the warehouse

  • 20% increase in speed and accuracy of operations

  • Better monitoring of workers’ activities
