Wearable technologies are making significant impacts in the market as they present the opportunity to improve safety, reduce injuries, improve efficiencies, and enhance quality of life for construction workers! Take a look at 4 wearable technologies to watch for in 2019.
Life by SmartCap can meet all your commercial requirements and revolutionize your workforce. The Smart Cap uses brain waves to monitor fatigue. If a worker starts to go to sleep, it sends an alert through vibrations and noise to let the worker know that they should stop what theyre doing. This will help keep workers alert on the job site and can help ensure a safer workplace.
Spot-R Clips by Triax Technologies can help identify the number and location of workers on site at any time. The Spot-R has a built-in gyroscope that alerts the supervisors to the location of someone who has experienced an accident. Workers can signal if theyre injured through a push-button alert. There is also a site-wide evacuation system in case all workers need to evacuate. Due to the large size of construction sites, it can be hard to get help to someone who has fallen, so this new system can potentially save a life!
Microsofts Original HoloLens has made its way into construction. The HoloLens allows users to overlay 3D building plans over a job site. The building plans are to scale so project managers would be able to see how things will work on the site before its built.Project managers are able to see parts that wont fit on site before the piece arrives, giving them time to resize or fix before they arrive at the site. This technology helps reduce the amount of rework that can be prevented.
