Industrial monitoring company Worldsensing has added the Connectivity Management Tool (CMT) to its Loadsensing industrial Internet of Things (IoT) family.
CMT gives engineers a “unique cloud-based hub” to manage devices, data and networks, building on Loadsensing’s wireless network technology for the acquisition of near real time geotechnical, geospatial and structural sensor information, the company says.
More than 270 engineering consultancies and monitoring technology providers worldwide already use Loadsensing to improve the safety of critical infrastructure, Worldsensing added.
“Our vision for CMT is to help our partners monitor geotech projects more efficiently,” Albert Zaragoza, Worldsensing’s Chief Technology Officer, said. “It will help them stay on top of their network, node and sensor performance and manage a variety of monitoring projects remotely, from the comfort of their office, through a single pane of glass.”
Within mining, construction, rail and structural health management, CMT addresses engineers’ need to automate monitoring projects through the cloud, reducing the need for site visits and improving safety while reducing costs, the company says.
“We know many of our partners monitor projects using spreadsheets, which can be daunting,” Bernat Trias, Director of Products at Worldsensing, said. “We can automate parts of the process so they can focus on what matters the most, which is to ensure the construction process or existing infrastructure are safe.”
Connected with CMT, and to offer additional value to engineering service providers, Worldsensing says it has built a strong alliance partner network that includes data visualisation software leaders such as Vista Data Vision, Maxwell Geosystem and Intelltech.
Worldsensing is also bundling Loadsensing with IDS GeoRadar by Hexagon and integrating the technology into Hexagon’s digital mining geomonitoring hub, HxGN.
