Construction Enquirer News Workers receive mobile risk alerts on site where Winvic has landed another warehouse deal
Winvic is testing Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology on a £21m groundworks contract at a 238-acre employment park in Leicestershire.
The contractor is on site delivering civils and infrastructure work at the Mercia Park development for IM Properties.
Winvic has now confirmed it is the first of two trial sites for its Computer-Vision-SMART safety system.
Site cameras monitor work and identify any hazards to operatives.
Safe working zones will be projected onto any potential hazards and workers alerted via a mobile app or wearable device when they move into a possible danger area.
Any operative not wearing appropriate PPE will also warned and the Project Manager alerted of the issue.
Winvic Construction Director, Rob Bull, said: “External and – later into the programme – internal cameras will be installed on site, which will detect, recognise and track hazards.
“Myself and team members who will be working on the site are already excited to be part of the technological advancements and to start receiving risk alerts direct to their mobile or wearable devices.”
Winvic has also been awarded the job to design and build a new warehouse and office complex for logistics firm DSV at Mercia Park.
