5G is transforming the way the construction industry does business. It makes construction progress faster, smarter, safer, and more efficient.
The construction industry has now entered a new phase of digitalization. Construction timelines are tight and being able to complete a construction project on time or ahead of schedule directly affects the profitability of the project. 5G delivers a robust and reliable connectivity with high-speed data access without much cabling requirement, allowing constant and rapid communication of massive files even when construction sites are located in remote areas.
5G also supports a massive deployment of IoT and other new technologies which enable applications in construction projects such as progress monitoring, constructions safety, quality monitoring, supply replenishment, construction tools and equipment tracking, building information modeling (BIM) and predictive maintenance. All these add value to meeting tight construction schedules.
CSL Mobile and RoboticsCats are working together to provide construction site fire detection services. Surveillance cameras will send video images over the 5G network to LookOut, our cloud-based AI fire detection software-as-a-service. LookOut will do Machine Learning object detection on the images and send detection alerts to users via mobile app or email. Customers can turn on the service on their surveillance cameras in minutes. LookOut construction site fire detection service is an easy-to-use and quick-to-deploy tool that improves the safety of construction sites.
CSL Mobile organized the New Era 5G Construction Workshop last Friday to introduce their full range of 5G enabled solutions for construction – robot assistant, assets tracking, security precaution, 5G drones, 5G surveillance and video analytics. More than a hundred people attended the event. We joined CSL Mobile and its technology partners to demonstrate our solutions in the workshop.
Keynote presentations, Q&A, demo tours, and cocktail networking. The event was content-rich and interactive. It was a very productive and engaging workshop. It is challenging to arrange physical events nowadays. The pandemic situation in Hong Kong is under control but there are strict social distancing requirements in the city. Things may change on daily basis. Event organizers have to prepare activities with less time and more limitations! Kudos to the CSL Mobile marketing team!
