Location-based Technologies for Real-time Site Safety Management System
In order to minimize the occurrence of construction site accidents, LSCM and the Hong Kong Polytechnic University have developed a "Proactive Construction Management System" (PCMS) to enhance the management and reconnaissance of construction sites for better site safety. In collaboration with the Development Bureau, the project has been tested at various government sites.
PCMS is made up of two main components: Location Based Services (LBS) which consists of wireless location tag readers for recording the location of workers and mobile devices, and Building Information Management (BIM) which monitors the environment around workers. When life-threatening hazard from moving objects is detected, or if any worker enters a dangerous area, the transceiver installed inside the helmet will alert the worker through the system.
