Re-broadcasted On Demand from FutureTech 2017!
The rising flow of venture capital into big ideas for construction applications of IoT, project management systems, virtual reality, augmented reality, and mixed reality indicates a strong interest in improving construction through technology… yet there is one problem: solutions assume high-bandwidth, always-on connections and location awareness. In reality, jobsites are neither always well connected nor location-aware.
Now Mortenson and DEWALT are collaborating on a pilot to blanket a jobsite with a WiFi mesh network that provides a reliable connection and real-time location tracking of people, equipment, tools, and materials. This presentation will delve into a future state of construction technology the project is revealing.
