The Best Examples of Construction Technology Used On-Site
1) Wearable Technology The rise of wearable technology like Google Glass creates significant new opportunities for the construction industry. Your managers and workers can use wearable technology in the field to easily view blueprints and work instructions, monitor workers’ health and well-being, take photographs and video and communicate with faraway coworkers.
2) In-Cab Cameras To improve safety and security, you can install in-cab cameras in your construction vehicles. The cameras can assist with vehicle training and monitor workers’ driving and performance while on the job. Some companies are even using recorded photos and video in the event of an accident or insurance claim to verify and support their worker’s actions and decisions.
3) Drones You can use unmanned aerial vehicles, better known as drones, to venture into places that humans and ground-based vehicles could only dream of reaching. From high up in the air, drones can easily take progress pictures and aerial surveys, using their on-board cameras to obtain high-resolution photographs and video and sending the results back down to earth.
5) Phablets The use of “phablets,” mobile devices with a screen size somewhere between a smartphone and a tablet computer, is on the upswing at construction sites. Phablets combine the communication ability of smartphones and the larger screen size of tablets, allowing your employees to view drawings and detailed reports.
