✓ To transmit precise location or activity information (even at a depth of tens of meters)
✓ To provide an autonomous and robust technological solution adapted to underground construction sites
From a technical point of view, the location solution relies on a mesh network of fixed and mobile beacons. The first one, also known as anchors, are installed evenly every 25 meters throughout the tunnel (over 4,1 k), while the latter, the mobile beacons, are installed on the equipment – the rubber-tired trains. Every 30 seconds, the mobile beacons interact with the anchors & the positional messages and information are transmitted to the gateway. Placed at the entrance of the tunnel, the gateway will send the raw data back that Omniscient’s algorithms are going to treat and interpret.
On the My Omniscient business platform, the production and logistic supervisor will be able to visualize several informations through dashbords/charts as : the position of the rubber-tired trains, their circulation direction or the time spent in the loading or unloading zones. Alerts can also be received rapidly if there are abnormal stops, preventing delays on the site.
The wireless infrastructure solution has improved the overall productivity of the construction site and ensure its monitoring in terms of safety and work quality.
✓ Better productivity on the site
✓ Quick identification of safety and quality issues
✓ Reduced risk of delays
