The SK Asteroid platform solution, incorporated with SAP HANA, produced
by SAP Technologies uses sensors on machinery to collect and analyse
data, enabling safety and efficiency across the construction site. The
3D system monitors position; movement; weight; inertia; wind speed and
direction of construction site equipment such as tower cranes.
All collected information can be viewed on dashboards and mobile
devices, while sensors may also be attached to on-site workers for
greater insights. Corrective measures can be enabled using auto pilot
controls on each machine, thus promoting safety on the site.
“If you were my customer, the system could tell you that you will
have a collision on your construction site next Thursday around 4pm
based on the information collected from sensors on your machinery, the
weather forecast, the supply chain data coming from logistics, the
attitude of the crane driver, and the predictive maintenance of the
equipment,” Kezeu told Forbes in June 2014.
Kezeu says more than 25% of his company’s projects are based in Dubai, and SK Solutions’ operations are carried
out in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, France, the UK and the USA.
Watch Kezeu talk about his partnership with SAP Technologies and his work on a project involving 250 cranes in Saudi Arabia:
