Construction sites of megaprojects have various workflows, according to the size and type of the project. In such a context, a challenging task is to plan and organise such complex projects. Further, the lack of adequate digital and precise data requires a permanent project manager with a physical presence. Hence, Ikarus Building with its Network helps project managers to control several construction sites remotely at various locations simultaneously and to intervene quickly to adjust their activity to the effects of real-time data.
The Ikarus network consists of intelligent devices (IoT) that are installed around the worksite, connected to vehicles, and materials, and attached to workers by our tag.
Besides, our AI and ML connected to the IoT application handles all incoming information and provides supervisors with up-to-date information and alerts for particular events such as the system stopping working and the process stage being completed, thereby allowing them to make suitable decisions.
Typically, the construction site is not prepared to face abnormal weather situations, and preventive mechanisms are not in place. Hence, the status of such a situation leads to the loss of money and downtime delays in the construction process. However, the Ikarus Building network’s usage promptly alerts such bad weather by interacting with the meteorological station. Therefore, countermeasures can be taken on time.
Maintenance of machinery and equipment is necessary to prevent additional expenses due to severe damage. The IoT sensors together the Ikarus’s Building Network allows sending information on the current state of tools and equipment in real-time to repair or maintain needs. The heavy-duty construction machines are equipped with sensors, where such sensors can detect the required maintenance from range, such as temperature fluctuations and increased vibrations.
There is a possibility of material theft at the site if the storage units are not adequately supervised. However, with the help of Ikarus’s tag any material theft is easily solved using IoT labels since these sensors inform the current location of such materials. Furthermore, the Ikarus-developed security device known as Ikarus Tag operates over Wi-Fi networks and our new exclusive standard. This unit is placed at doors and provides control over doors through mobile devices. Moreover, such a device scans every object passing through doors and triggers an alarm when there are threats or when someone enters without allowed.
Firms need to make sure that employees work effectively and efficiently under considerations of third-party safety, obligations of the contract, and rules of the firm. Through the Ikarus Navigation application, our tags attached to the employees’ uniforms are enabled to notify the supervisor of their presence, abilities, and credentials for the task and the time they spend on particular activities. Furthermore, such data from IoT is used for human resource development and payment procedures by Ikarus’s network.
Ikarus allows through our tag and our AI allows to recognize workers who do not follow the rules and security by notifying the supervisor.
