Infrastructure

Extending the life and improving preventative maintenance of critical infrastructure with real-time data

When working with ageing infrastructure, it is crucial to monitor data and get real-time feedback for correct maintenance and safety. The development of new infrastructure also requires a complex design of geotechnical and structural health monitoring. The lack of reliable monitoring solutions not only causes safety concerns but also a serious impact on the project’s productivity.

Common challenges experienced in monitoring infrastructure sites

Requirement for real-time data
Cable-based and manual monitoring solutions are not reliable
Safety; site location is very remote, underground or hard to access
Difficulty collecting sensor data from underground locations
Dynamic environments that are constantly changing
Site complexity and scale
Finding monitoring solutions that fit within project budgets
Compliance with environmental, social and governance requirements
Banner Infrastructure

Infrastructure covers a wide range of projects, from tunnelling to bridges, dams to highways, all faced with complex, dynamic and large-scale sites, making the deployment of reliable monitoring solutions extremely challenging. Legacy systems such as manual monitoring or cable-based solutions are too costly to install and maintain and do not give back the appropriate feedback needed for large-scale sites.

Reliable, wireless, real-time solutions address these challenges, reducing risk and liability, ultimately improving the safety and productivity of the project by providing readings from sensors placed where you need them.

Our Solution

Ackcio Beam provides a wireless sensor solution to deliver geotechnical, structural, and environmental data with greater access to all areas of your worksite. This allows operators to access sensor data remotely and in real-time from crucial locations, during work projects. Ackcio Mesh solves the challenges of obstructions, high noise, and big, complex sites that interfere with connectivity and reduce data reliability.

By using smarter, data-driven decisions, Ackcio Beam enhances safety and improves risk management, which in turn increases productivity.
