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.
