The challenge

Safely managing building resources

The cost of managing building resources is substantial. To safeguard people from hazardous environments, the world needs a scalable, long-term, low-maintenance localisation solution. Utilising GPS technology is not possible in many locations (such as indoors).

Our response

Delivering asset tracking, more productive job sites and improved health, safety and environment outcomes

The team leveraged iBeacon technology to triangulate the location of objects indoors. They developed the algorithm that underpins the BLEAT technology and built a prototype BLEAT system. The technology provided room-level accuracy tracking. Light detection and ranging (LiDAR) was used to both benchmark and improve BLEAT's location engine accuracy. The resultant technology provides scalable, low‑cost, low-maintenance, and low-power tracking of people and indoor objects.

The results

Improved productivity and reduced costs on building sites

The BLEAT system has led to productivity improvement and reduced costs on building sites, especially for builders and contractors. Adoption of technology also enables improved health and safety. The work has generated new employment opportunities and revenue with other significant applications. The benefit-cost ratio is estimated at 4.42.
