Increasing construction sector productivity with smart IOT solutions

Nov 11 2021 | Press Release

Construction-related spending accounts for 13% of the world’s GDP, however the sector’s annual productivity growth remains stagnant, at about 1% over the last 20 years, says Fang Chen, Distinguished Professor at the University of Technology Sydney.

Indeed, construction remains one of the least digitised industries in the world and highlights a real need, and opportunity to leverage and embrace new technology innovation to increase productivity on-site.

Technology innovation brought to life through Internet of Things (IoT) has the potential to revolutionise the modern construction site but simply having access to the data generated by devices is not enough. How do you create an aggregated view of various data inputs and use that to digitise and automate workflows, to derive greater visibility and increase site efficiency?

Inauro’s data fusion platform PerspioTM is a globally recognised, award winning platform that brings together data from different IoT devices to provide an integrated view and change how you manage and streamline your operations.

We’re proud that Perspio has been announced as the winner of the Big Data, Cloud & Analytics category in IoT Now’s IoT Global Awards, which honours the most innovative companies, products and individual talent across the globe.

We’ve also been recognised in the Australian IoT Awards, winners of the Smart Data Use and Infrastructure Construction categories, and Angus Kennard, our Co-CEO and Co-Founder named a Finalist In the IoT Champion award.

These awards recognise that real-time data is increasingly important to industry, government, and citizens, assisting our response to crises and enabling industry to compete.

“Inauro is a scalable platform which demonstrated real use in construction. We believe this kind of innovation is going to help the sector to increase productivity”, said Chen.

Perspio’s data fusion platform links operational tools with plant, equipment, labour and material data from the site into one simple view, enabling site managers to better manage risk in real time. This means construction sites will be more efficient, have better safety outcomes and be more environmentally responsible.

“A truly smart use of data that preserves privacy and opens up better workflow for construction across multiple parties”, said Frank Zeichner, CEO, IOT Alliance Australia.
