SMIE will introduce new software to drive anti-collision devises, part of a wider information system for operators and site managers.
The Prosite range will ultimately provide operators with information about the entire work site, including the operation of other cranes and when they are shut down for any reason.
Data concerning the work rate of the cranes will be stored and supplied live via a wi-fi to site managers who can set new working parameters for the cranes and send these to the operator. Live feeds from the cameras attached to various parts of the crane will also be available through the network.
In the future, data from wind monitoring sensors will also be available along with a range of other safety features. The system is set to be launched later in the year.
